Examples:
The following is an example of a console color provider extension point:

<extension point="org.eclipse.debug.ui.consoleColorProviders">
  <consoleColorProvider 
     id="com.example.ExampleConsoleColorProvider"
     class="com.example.ExampleConsoleColorProvider"
     processType="ExampleProcessType">
  </consoleColorProvider>
</extension>
In the above example, the contributed color provider will be used for processes of type "ExampleProcessType", which corresponds to the process attribute IProcess.ATTR_PROCESS_TYPE. Process types are client defined, and are set by clients that create processes.
