Package org.eclipse.team.ui.synchronize Description

Contains the team synchronization presentation framework and support for the Synchronize View.

Package Specification

Contains the team synchronization presentation framework and support for the Synchronize View. A synchronization framework is a unified architecture for presenting and manipulating resource synchronization state. Consider the synchronization model described by the classes in org.eclipse.team.core.synchronize as the physical representation of synchronization state then the classes in this package allow you to control how the model is presented to the user. This framework doesn't attempt to provide common operations for manipulating synchronization state. Instead it is left up to the framework user to add their own domain specific operations to the presentation.

The primary advantages of this synchronization presentation framework are that it:

The synchronization presentation framework consists of:


Synchronize View Interfaces

These interfaces and classes support a generic Synchronize View that can show multiple synchronize participants. The basic model for integrating into the Synchronize View consists of:

Synchronize participants are declared by extending the synchronizeParticipants extension point. A synchronize manager manages all active synchronize participants, and provides notification of participants which are added and removed. Participants are displayed in a page book view. Each participant implementation is reponsible for creating its page, which provides freedom of presentation to the synchronize view implementation. A single participant may be displayed simultaneously in multiple synchronize views, and in different workbench windows.


SubscriberParticipants

 SubscriberParticipant is an abstract class that is intented to support a common synchronization workflow. It is the easy way to get into the Synchronize View and essentially inherit the default synchronize experience. The requirement for using a SubscriberParticipant is to create a subscriber that can produce SyncInfo (e.g. objects that describe the synchronization between local and remote resources).

Compare Inputs

These are helpers for allowing users to display and edit resources being synchronized by integrating with the compare support available in Eclipse.

Synchronize action and operation utilities

These are helpers for writing actions that are performed on elements shown in synchronize viewers.
