public interface IStorageEditorInput extends IEditorInput
Interface for a IStorage input to an editor.

Clients implementing this editor input interface should override Object.equals(Object) to answer true for two inputs that are the same. The IWorkbenchPage.openEditor APIs are dependent on this to find an editor with the same input.

Clients should implement this interface to declare new types of IStorage editor inputs.

File-oriented editors should support this as a valid input type, and display its content for viewing (but not allow modification). Within the editor, the "save" and "save as" operations should create a new file resource within the workspace.

All editor inputs must implement the IAdaptable interface; extensions are managed by the platform's adapter manager.
