Interface IStreamMerger

  • @Deprecated
    public interface IStreamMerger
    Clients should use instead.
    This interface defines a single operation for performing a three-way merge on three input streams. The merged result is written to an output stream.

    Clients must implement this interface when contributing new mergers to the extension point.

      • OK

        static final int OK
        Indicates the successful completion of the merge operation (value IStatus.OK)

        static final int CONFLICT
        Indicates that a change conflict prevented the merge from successful completion (value 1)

        IStatus merge​(OutputStream output,
                      String outputEncoding,
                      InputStream ancestor,
                      String ancestorEncoding,
                      InputStream target,
                      String targetEncoding,
                      InputStream other,
                      String otherEncoding,
                      IProgressMonitor monitor)
        Performs a merge operation on the given input streams and writes the merge result to the output stream. On success a status IStatus.OK is returned, on error a status IStatus.ERROR. If the merge operation cannot deal with conflicts, the code of the error status has the value IStreamMerger.CONFLICT. For text oriented mergers the encoding for the input and output streams is honored. It is the responsibility of callers to close input and output streams.
        output - the byte stream to which the merge result is written; the merger will not close the stream
        outputEncoding - the encoding to use when writing to the output stream
        ancestor - the byte stream from which the common ancestor is read
        ancestorEncoding - the encoding of the ancestor input byte stream
        target - the byte stream containing the target of the merge
        targetEncoding - the encoding of the target input byte stream
        other - the byte stream containing the target of the merge
        otherEncoding - the encoding of the other input byte stream
        monitor - reports progress of the merge operation
        returns the completion status of the operation
