Compilation Participants

Identifier:
org.eclipse.jdt.core.compilationParticipant

Since:
3.2

Description:
This extension point allows clients to participate in the compilation process by receiving notifications at various stages of build and reconcile, via a org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler.CompilationParticipant.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( compilationParticipant*)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>


<!ELEMENT compilationParticipant ( requires* , managedMarker*)>

<!ATTLIST compilationParticipant

class               CDATA #REQUIRED

id                  CDATA #REQUIRED

modifiesEnvironment (true | false)

createsProblems     (true | false)

requiredSourceLevel CDATA #IMPLIED

>

definition of a compilation participant. This definition allows to order participants. Participants are run by group. The group of participants that modify the environment is run first, then the group of participants that create problems is run, finally the group of other participants is run. Inside each group, participants are ordered using their 'requires' attributes. If a 'requires' attribute point to a participant that doesn't belong to the group, it is ignored.


  • class - the class that implements this compilation participant. This class must implement a public subclass of org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler.CompilationParticipant with a public 0-argument constructor.
  • id - a unique identifier for this participant
  • modifiesEnvironment - optionally specify whether this compilation participant modifies the environment, thus affecting binding resolution. If not specified, false is assumed.
  • createsProblems - optionally specifies whether this compilation participant creates problems. If not specified, false is assumed.
  • requiredSourceLevel - the required source level this participant needs (one of the JavaCore.VERSION* constants). If a project's source level is below this required source level, the participant will not be invoked. If this attribute is not specified, the participant will be invoked for any source level.

<!ELEMENT requires EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST requires

id CDATA #REQUIRED

>

a participant that is required to run this compilation participant


  • id - the unique identifier of the participant that is required

<!ELEMENT managedMarker EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST managedMarker

markerType CDATA #REQUIRED

>

a managed marker is created from the recorded problems (see BuildContext#recordNewProblems(CategorizedProblem[])) and is removed when the corresponding source file is re-built or when the project is cleaned


  • markerType - the type of the managed marker

Examples:
Example of a declaration of a compilationParticipant:
                                                                       
<extension
      id=
"apt"

      name=
"%annotationProcessingName"

      point=
"org.eclipse.jdt.core.compilationParticipant"
>
   <compilationParticipant
         class=
"org.eclipse.jdt.apt.core.internal.AptCompilationParticipant"

         id=
"APT"

         requiredSourceLevel=
"1.5"
>
      <managedMarker markerType=
"org.eclipse.jdt.apt.core.compile.problem"
/>
   </compilationParticipant>
</extension>
