Class ConfiguratorUtils


  • @Deprecated
    public class ConfiguratorUtils
    extends Object
    Deprecated.
    The org.eclipse.update component has been replaced by Equinox p2. This API will be deleted in a future release. See bug 311590 for details.
    Helper class to get platform configuration data without having to use BootLoader methods from the compatibility layer.

    Note: This class/interface is part of an interim API that is still under development and expected to change significantly before reaching stability. It is being made available at this early stage to solicit feedback from pioneering adopters on the understanding that any code that uses this API will almost certainly be broken (repeatedly) as the API evolves.
