  <extension
         point="org.eclipse.ui.ide.markerImageProviders">
      <imageprovider
        markertype="org.eclipse.core.resources.taskmarker"
            icon="taskicon.png"
            id="myPlugin.declarativeMarkerProvider">
      </imageprovider>
      <imageprovider
            markertype="org.eclipse.core.resources.problemmarker"
            class="myPlugin.MyIMarkerImageProvider"
            id="myPlugin.implementedMarkerProvider">
      </imageprovider>
   </extension>
