Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core
Class ClasspathContainerInitializer

java.lang.Object
  extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.ClasspathContainerInitializer

public abstract class ClasspathContainerInitializer
extends Object

Abstract base implementation of all classpath container initializer. Classpath variable containers are used in conjunction with the "org.eclipse.jdt.core.classpathContainerInitializer" extension point.

Clients should subclass this class to implement a specific classpath container initializer. The subclass must have a public 0-argument constructor and a concrete implementation of initialize(IPath, IJavaProject).

Multiple classpath containers can be registered, each of them declares the container ID they can handle, so as to narrow the set of containers they can resolve, in other words, a container initializer is guaranteed to only be activated to resolve containers which match the ID they registered onto.

In case multiple container initializers collide on the same container ID, the first registered one will be invoked.

2.0

Method Detail

initialize

public abstract void initialize(
IPath containerPath,
                                
IJavaProject project)
                         throws 
CoreException
Binds a classpath container to a IClasspathContainer for a given project, or silently fails if unable to do so.

A container is identified by a container path, which must be formed of two segments. The first segment is used as a unique identifier (which this initializer did register onto), and the second segment can be used as an additional hint when performing the resolution.

The initializer is invoked if a container path needs to be resolved for a given project, and no value for it was recorded so far. The implementation of the initializer would typically set the corresponding container using JavaCore#setClasspathContainer.

A container initialization can be indirectly performed while attempting to resolve a project classpath using IJavaProject#getResolvedClasspath(; or directly when using JavaCore#getClasspathContainer. During the initialization process, any attempt to further obtain the same container will simply return null so as to avoid an infinite regression of initializations.

A container initialization may also occur indirectly when setting a project classpath, as the operation needs to resolve the classpath for validation purpose. While the operation is in progress, a referenced container initializer may be invoked. If the initializer further tries to access the referring project classpath, it will not see the new assigned classpath until the operation has completed. Note that once the Java change notification occurs (at the end of the operation), the model has been updated, and the project classpath can be queried normally.

This method is called by the Java model to give the party that defined this particular kind of classpath container the chance to install classpath container objects that will be used to convert classpath container entries into simpler classpath entries. The method is typically called exactly once for a given Java project and classpath container entry. This method must not be called by other clients.

There are a wide variety of conditions under which this method may be invoked. To ensure that the implementation does not interfere with correct functioning of the Java model, the implementation should use only the following Java model APIs:

The effects of using other Java model APIs are unspecified.

Parameters:
containerPath - a two-segment path (ID/hint) identifying the container that needs to be resolved
project - the Java project in which context the container is to be resolved. This allows generic containers to be bound with project specific values.
Throws:
CoreException - if an exception occurs during the initialization

canUpdateClasspathContainer

public boolean canUpdateClasspathContainer(
IPath containerPath,
                                           
IJavaProject project)
Returns true if this container initializer can be requested to perform updates on its own container values. If so, then an update request will be performed using requestClasspathContainerUpdate(IPath, IJavaProject, IClasspathContainer).

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which requires to be updated
project - the project for which the container is to be updated
Returns:
returns true if the container can be updated
Since:
2.1

requestClasspathContainerUpdate

public void requestClasspathContainerUpdate(
IPath containerPath,
                                            
IJavaProject project,
                                            
IClasspathContainer containerSuggestion)
                                     throws 
CoreException
Request a registered container definition to be updated according to a container suggestion. The container suggestion only acts as a place-holder to pass along the information to update the matching container definition(s) held by the container initializer. In particular, it is not expected to store the container suggestion as is, but rather adjust the actual container definition based on suggested changes.

IMPORTANT: In reaction to receiving an update request, a container initializer will update the corresponding container definition (after reconciling changes) at its earliest convenience, using JavaCore.setClasspathContainer(IPath, IJavaProject[], IClasspathContainer[], IProgressMonitor). Until it does so, the update will not be reflected in the Java Model.

In order to anticipate whether the container initializer allows to update its containers, the predicate canUpdateClasspathContainer(IPath, IJavaProject) should be used.

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which requires to be updated
project - the project for which the container is to be updated
containerSuggestion - a suggestion to update the corresponding container definition
Throws:
CoreException - when JavaCore#setClasspathContainer would throw any.
Since:
2.1

getDescription

public 
String getDescription(
IPath containerPath,
                             
IJavaProject project)
Returns a readable description for a container path. A readable description for a container path can be used for improving the display of references to container, without actually needing to resolve them. A good implementation should answer a description consistent with the description of the associated target container (see IClasspathContainer.getDescription()).

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which requires a readable description
project - the project from which the container is referenced
Returns:
a string description of the container
Since:
2.1

getFailureContainer

public 
IClasspathContainer getFailureContainer(
IPath containerPath,
                                               
IJavaProject project)
Returns a classpath container that is used after this initializer failed to bind a classpath container to a IClasspathContainer for the given project. A non-null failure container indicates that there will be no more request to initialize the given container for the given project.

By default a non-null failure container with no classpath entries is returned. Clients wishing to get a chance to run the initializer again should override this method and return null.

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which failed to initialize
project - the project from which the container is referenced
Returns:
the default failure container, or null if wishing to run the initializer again
Since:
3.3

getComparisonID

public 
Object getComparisonID(
IPath containerPath,
                              
IJavaProject project)
Returns an object which identifies a container for comparison purpose. This allows to eliminate redundant containers when accumulating classpath entries (e.g. runtime classpath computation). When requesting a container comparison ID, one should ensure using its corresponding container initializer. Indeed, a random container initializer cannot be held responsible for determining comparison IDs for arbitrary containers.

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which is being checked
project - the project for which the container is to being checked
Returns:
returns an Object identifying the container for comparison
Since:
3.0

getAccessRulesStatus

public 
IStatus getAccessRulesStatus(
IPath containerPath,
                                    
IJavaProject project)
Returns the access rules attribute status according to this initializer.

The returned status can have one of the following severities:

The status message can contain more information.

If the subclass does not override this method, then the default behavior is to return OK if and only if the classpath container can be updated (see canUpdateClasspathContainer(IPath, IJavaProject)).

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which requires to be updated
project - the project for which the container is to be updated
Returns:
returns the access rules attribute status
Since:
3.3

getAttributeStatus

public 
IStatus getAttributeStatus(
IPath containerPath,
                                  
IJavaProject project,
                                  
String attributeKey)
Returns the extra attribute status according to this initializer.

The returned status can have one of the following severities:

The status message can contain more information.

If the subclass does not override this method, then the default behavior is to return OK if and only if the classpath container can be updated (see canUpdateClasspathContainer(IPath, IJavaProject)).

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which requires to be updated
project - the project for which the container is to be updated
attributeKey - the key of the extra attribute
Returns:
returns the extra attribute status
Since:
3.3

IStatus getSourceAttachmentStatus(
IPath containerPath,
                                         
IJavaProject project)
Returns the source attachment attribute status according to this initializer.

The returned status can have one of the following severities:

The status message can contain more information.

If the subclass does not override this method, then the default behavior is to return OK if and only if the classpath container can be updated (see canUpdateClasspathContainer(IPath, IJavaProject)).

Parameters:
containerPath - the path of the container which requires to be updated
project - the project for which the container is to be updated
