Identifier:
org.eclipse.emf.cdo.viewProviders

Since:
2.0.0

Description:
This extension point is used to define the CDOViewProvider factories that create instances capable of handling URIs according to the defined regular expression. This is registered to a global CDOViewProviderFactory Registry CDOViewProviderFactory.INSTANCE

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension (viewProvider+)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED>


<!ELEMENT viewProvider EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST viewProvider

class    CDATA #REQUIRED

regex    CDATA #REQUIRED

priority CDATA "500">


Examples:
Following is an example of how a URI scheme can be registered:

  <viewprovider factory="org.eclipse.emf.cdo.util.DefaultCDOViewProvider$DefaultCDOViewProviderFactory"
   high_priority="false"
   regex="cdo.*">
  </viewprovider>

API Information:
The value of the class attribute must represent a class that implements org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.Resource.Factory.

A URI scheme can be also registered from the source code with the Resource.Factory.Registry.INSTANCE as follows:


  Resource.Factory.Registry.INSTANCE.putFactory(new DefaultCDOViewProviderFactory(), "cdo.*", "false");

Supplied Implementation:
org.eclipse.emf.cdo.util.DefaultCDOViewProvider$DefaultCDOViewProviderFactory provides default stub implementation. org.eclipse.emf.cdo.internal.ui.preferences.PreferencesCDOViewProvider.PreferencesCDOViewProviderFactory creates a provider that opens views according to a preference-page based repository URI list.
