Provides the framework for the parser service.


Interface Summary
CommonParserHint Defines common parser hints.
IParser The interface for all parsers
IParserEditStatus Status object for indicating the validity of an edit.
IParserProvider The interface for all parser providers Must implement a method to return a parser from an IAdaptable hint

Class Summary
GetParserOperation Operation to get a parser using an IAdaptable hint for the parser to be used
ParserEditStatus Concrete implementation of the IParserEditStatus suitable for use or extending.
ParserOptions This is a wrapper used for defining, setting, and retrieving flags that can be used for the parser operations that take a flags int as a parameter.
ParserService The parser service which returns a parser for an IAdaptable.

Package Description

Provides the framework for the parser service. Given an IAdaptable hint, the ParserService class contains a method to return a parser for the IAdaptable. This is performed using the GetParserOperation. From this method, the ParserService class provides implementations of convenience methods to obtain text for the IAdaptable and to determine whether or not the IAdaptable can be edited. Flags for the parser service may be defined in an interface with constants such as CommonParserHint or using a convenience wrapper such as ParserOptions.

Using this Package

To implement a parser provider, implement IParserProvider, typically subclassing AbstractProvider. For on demand loading, consider implementing IProviderPolicy and in particular the provides() method. To implement the parser to be returned by the IParserProvider, implement the IParser interface.
