Property Resolver



Allows a third-party to define an alternative instance of the design time property resolver. This id can then be set on a project using DesignTimeApplicationManager.setPropertyResolverProvider. Once set on a project this id will be used to load the active design time property resolver.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( propertyresolver)>

<!ATTLIST extension





<!ELEMENT propertyresolver EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST propertyresolver

id                 CDATA #REQUIRED

class              CDATA #REQUIRED

forRuntimeClass    CDATA #IMPLIED

instancePerProject (true | false)


  • id - The id to be used to identify this property resolver.
  • class - The class implementing the property resolver.
  • forRuntimeClass - Names a class (it need not be on the class path at designtime) that this designtime property resolver is intended to shadow. The instance of AbstractDTPropertyResolver provided by the 'class' attribute _must_ implement the IDecorativeResolver tagging interface in order to be used in this way.
  • instancePerProject - Default if not specified is false. This is backward compatible with pre-3.0 behaviour for the propertyresolver extension point. If set to false (or not set) a single instance of the property resolver will be used for all design time managers in the workspace. If set to true, a new instance will be created on every time this property resolver becomes the active one on a design time application manager. If 'class' specifies a type that implements org.eclipse.jst.jsf.designtime.el.IInstancePerProjectResolver, then setProject will be called with the host project. Implementing this interface is optional.


The following example defines a new property resolver implemented by CustomDTPropertyResolver
