Examples:
The following is an example of the template registration:


   <extension
         point="org.eclipse.pde.ui.templates">
      <template
            contributingId="org.eclipse.ui.actionSets"
            name="XYZ Action Set Generator"
   class="com.example.xyz.XYZActionSetTemplate"
            id="com.example.xyz.ActionSetTemplate">
      </template>
   </extension>

API Information:
Each template must provide a class that implements org.eclipse.pde.ui.templates.ITemplateSection interface. However, abstract classes that implement the interface and can be extended are available.

Supplied Implementation:
PDE UI contributes a number of templates that create extensions for the most popular extension points like editors, views, preferences etc.
