booleanReturn a path to a location in the file-system where clients are able to write files that will have the same sharing/scope properties as preferences defined in this scope.
getName()Return the name of the scope that this context is associated with.Return the preferences node that contains the preferences for the given qualifier or
nullif the node cannot be determined.
getNodeReturn the preferences node that contains the preferences for the given qualifier or
nullif the node cannot be determined. The given qualifier must not be
nullbut may be a path to a sub-node within the scope.

new InstanceScope().getNode("org.eclipse.core.resources");returns the preference node in the instance scope where the preferences for "org.eclipse.core.resources" are stored.
