The search plugin implements the search dialog and the search result view. Client can contribute search dialog pages (extension point 'org.eclipse.search.searchPages') and search result view pages (extension point 'org.eclipse.search.searchResultViewPages') to integrate their searches to the shared search user interface.

Search dialog pages contributing to the 'searchPages' extension point must implement
ISearchPage. A search page

ISearchPageContainer to modify search
A search dialog page can additionally implement
