      public void initializeDefaultPreferences()
      Description copied from class: AbstractPreferenceInitializer
      This method is called by the preference initializer to initialize default preference values. Clients should get the correct node for their bundle and then set the default values on it. For example:
       public void initializeDefaultPreferences() {
              Preferences node = DefaultScope.INSTANCE.getNode("");
              node.put(key, value);

      Note: Clients should only set default preference values for their own bundle.

      Note: Clients should not call this method. It will be called automatically by the preference initializer when the appropriate default preference node is accessed.
