A provider is registered with an identifier that can be referenced by a launch configuration. A classpath provider is consulted to compute a classpath or source lookup path when a launch configuration references a provider in one or both of the following attributes:
A provider extension is defined in
plugin.xml. Following is an example definition of a runtime classpath provider extension.
<extension point="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.classpathProviders"> <classpathProvider> id="com.example.ExampleClasspathProvider" class="com.example.ExampleClasspathProviderImpl" </classpathProvider> </extension>The attributes are specified as follows:
idspecifies a unique identifier for this extension. This identifier may be used to reference a provider on one of the launch configuration attributes mentioned above.
classspecifies the fully qualified name of the Java class that implements
Clients may implement this interface.
Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescriptionComputes and returns an unresolved classpath for the given launch configuration.Returns the resolved path corresponding to the given path, in the context of the given launch configuration.
(ILaunchConfiguration configuration) throws CoreExceptionComputes and returns an unresolved classpath for the given launch configuration. Variable and container entries are not resolved.
configuration- launch configuration
- unresolved path
CoreException- if unable to compute a path
(IRuntimeClasspathEntry entries, ILaunchConfiguration configuration) throws CoreExceptionReturns the resolved path corresponding to the given path, in the context of the given launch configuration. Variable and container entries are resolved. The returned (resolved) path need not have the same number of entries as the given (unresolved) path.
entries- entries to resolve
configuration- launch configuration context to resolve in
- resolved path
CoreException- if unable to resolve a path
