This extension point should be used to register Eclipse code samples. A sample is one or more Eclipse projects that are packaged in a way suitable for subsequent import into the workspace.
Each sample has a name, one or more project elements and a final perspective. The sample wizard will create a project for each
project element, import the content from the archive, and open the final perspective if specified. Projects must be complete i.e. have correct nature and classpath (if Java or plug-in projects).
If target view is specified and contains resource elements, it will be used to select and reveal those resources in the view after the sample has been created.
This extension point is currently provided for internal Eclipse SDK usage only. It should not be used for anything else except Eclipse SDK examples.
