Identifier:
org.eclipse.jdt.debug.javaLogicalStructures

Since:
3.1

Description:
This extension point allows developers to define a logical structure for Java objects of a specified type. The logical value is created by evaluating the provided code snippet.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension (javaLogicalStructure+)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED>


<!ELEMENT javaLogicalStructure (variable+)?>

<!ATTLIST javaLogicalStructure

type        CDATA #REQUIRED

subtypes    (true | false) "true"

value       CDATA #IMPLIED

description CDATA #REQUIRED>


<!ELEMENT variable EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST variable

name  CDATA #REQUIRED

value CDATA #REQUIRED>

One variable of the logical value for the object of this type.



Examples:
Following is an example of a Java logical structure extension point with two structures:


<extension point="org.eclipse.jdt.debug.javaLogicalStructures">
  <javaLogitalStructure
      subtypes="true"
      value="return entrySet().toArray();"
      type="java.util.Map"/>
  <javaLogitalStructure
      subtypes="true"
      type="java.util.Map$Entry">
    <variable
      value="return getKey();"
      name="key"/>
    <variable
      value="return getValue();"
      name="value"/>
  </javaLogitalStructure>
</extension>

In the example above a Map is translated into its entries and a Map$Entry is translated into its key and value.
