      • getLocation

        public IPath getLocation()
        Description copied from interface: IScopeContext
        Return a path to a location in the file-system where clients are able to write files that will have the same sharing/scope properties as preferences defined in this scope.

        Implementors may return null if the location is not known, is unavailable, or is not applicable to this scope.

        Specified by:
        getLocation in interface IScopeContext
        Returns:
        a writable location in the file system or null
      • getName

        public String getName()
        Description copied from interface: IScopeContext
        Return the name of the scope that this context is associated with. Must not be null.
        Specified by:
        getName in interface IScopeContext
        Returns:
        the name of the scope
      • getNode

        public IEclipsePreferences getNode​(String qualifier)
        Description copied from interface: IScopeContext
        Return the preferences node that contains the preferences for the given qualifier or null if the node cannot be determined. The given qualifier must not be null but may be a path to a sub-node within the scope.

        An example of a qualifier in Eclipse 2.1 would be the plug-in identifier that the preference is associated with (e.g. the "org.eclipse.core.resources" plug-in defines the "description.autobuild" preference).

        This method can be used to determine the appropriate preferences node to aid in setting key/value pairs. For instance: new InstanceScope().getNode("org.eclipse.core.resources"); returns the preference node in the instance scope where the preferences for "org.eclipse.core.resources" are stored.

        Specified by:
        getNode in interface IScopeContext
        Parameters:
        qualifier - a qualifier for the preference name
        Returns:
        the node containing the plug-in preferences or null
