public interface IProcessFactory
A process factory is used to override default process (
IProcess) creation by the debug plug-in, and can be contributed via plug-in XML. When a new process is created via
DebugPlugin.newProcess(..), the launch configuration associated with the specified launch is consulted for a process factory attribute (
DebugPlugin.ATTR_PROCESS_FACTORY_ID). If present, the associated process factory is consulted to create a process for the launch. If not present a default process implementation is created and returned by the debug plug-in.
Following is example plug-in XML that contributes a process factory.
<extension point="org.eclipse.debug.core.processFactories"> <processFactory id="com.example.ExampleIdentifier" class="com.example.ExampleProcessFactory"> </processFactory> </extension>The attributes are specified as follows:
- id - a unique identifier for this extension point
- class - the fully qualified name of a class the implements
Clients contributing a process factory are intended to implement this interface.
newProcessCreates and returns a new process representing the given
java.lang.Process. A streams proxy is created for the I/O streams in the system process. The process is added to the given launch, and the process is initialized with the given attribute map.
launch- the launch the process is contained in
process- the system process to wrap
label- the label assigned to the process
attributes- initial values for the attribute map
- the process
