Interface IFactoryPath


  • public interface IFactoryPath
    A minimal API for manipulating the annotation processor factory path. The factory path is an ordered list of containers, each of which has certain attributes, e.g., isEnabled, runInBatchMode. Containers on the path do not necessarily contain implementations of any particular service; in particular, a path may have both Java 5 and Java 6 annotation processors, as well as entries that contain supporting classes or resources.

    Clients should not implement this interface.

    • Method Detail

      • addExternalJar

        void addExternalJar​(File jar)
        Add an external jar file (not in the workspace) to the head of the factory path. If the jar is already on the path, move it to the head. The jar will be added with default attributes, e.g., isEnabled=true, runInBatchMode=false.
        Parameters:
        jar - a java.io.File representing the jar file. Must not be null.
      • removeExternalJar

        void removeExternalJar​(File jar)
        Remove an external jar file from the factory path. If the jar isn't on the path, do nothing.
        Parameters:
        jar - must not be null.
      • addWkspJar

        void addWkspJar​(IPath jarPath)
        Add a jar file in the workspace to the head of the factory path. If the jar is already on the path, move it to the head. The jar will be added with default attributes, e.g., isEnabled=true, runInBatchMode=false.
        Parameters:
        jarPath - an Eclipse IPath representing the jar file; the path is relative to the workspace root. Must not be null.
      • removeWkspJar

        void removeWkspJar​(IPath jarPath)
        Remove a workspace-relative jar from the factory path. If the jar isn't on the path, do nothing.
        Parameters:
        jarPath - an Eclipse IPath representing the jar file; the path is relative to the workspace root. Must not be null.
      • addVarJar

        void addVarJar​(IPath jarPath)
        Add a jar file in the workspace, specified with a classpath variable, to the head of the factory path. If the jar is already on the path, move it to the head. The jar will be added with default attributes, e.g., isEnabled=true, runInBatchMode=false.
        Parameters:
        jarPath - an Eclipse IPath representing the jar file; the first segment of the path is assumed to be the variable name. Must not be null.
      • removeVarJar

        void removeVarJar​(IPath jarPath)
        Remove from the factory path a jar file whose name is based on a classpath variable. If the jar isn't on the path, do nothing.
        Parameters:
        jarPath - an Eclipse IPath representing the jar file; the first segment of the path is assumed to be the variable name. Must not be null.
      • enablePlugin

        void enablePlugin​(String pluginId)
                   throws CoreException
        Enable a plugin on the factory path, and move it to the head of the path.
        Parameters:
        pluginId - the unique id of the processor plugin, e.g., "org.example.myProcessors"
        Throws:
        CoreException - if the plugin is not installed.
      • disablePlugin

        void disablePlugin​(String pluginId)
        Disable a plugin on the factory path. If the plugin is not installed, do nothing.
        Parameters:
        pluginId - the unique id of the processor plugin, e.g., "org.example.myProcessors"
