Interface ISearchResult

All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface ISearchResult
Implementors of this interface represent the result of a search. How the results of a search are structured is up to the implementor of this interface. The abstract base implementation provided with AbstractTextSearchResult uses a flat list of matches to represent the result of a search. Subclasses of SearchResultEvent can be used in order to notify listeners of search result changes.

To present search results to the user implementors of this interface must also provide an extension for the extension point

Clients may implement this interface.
