Eclipse Plug-in Developer Guide

Search support

If your plug-in defines and manipulates its own resource types, you may have special requirements for searching a resource.  For example, the Java IDE plug-in implements a search engine specialized for Java files.   

The search plug-in allows you to add a specialized page describing your search to the workbench search dialog.  This allows you to obtain any specialized information needed from the user and perform a search using your plug-in's internal model.

You should also provide a specialized class for displaying the search results. Abstract implementations of a search result page are provided to give you a head start.

These services are contributed using search plug-in extension points.
