Release 3.5

org.eclipse.core.resources.team
Interface IMoveDeleteHook


public interface IMoveDeleteHook

Primary interface for hooking the implementation of IResource.move and IResource.delete.

This interface is intended to be implemented by the team component in conjunction with the org.eclipse.core.resources.moveDeleteHook standard extension point. Individual team providers may also implement this interface. It is not intended to be implemented by other clients. The methods defined on this interface are called from within the implementations of IResource.move and IResource.delete. They are not intended to be called from anywhere else.

Since:
2.0

Method Detail

deleteFile

boolean deleteFile(
IResourceTree tree,
                   
IFile file,
                   int updateFlags,
                   
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Implements IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor) where the receiver is a file. Returns true to accept responsibility for implementing this operation as per the API contract.

In broad terms, a full re-implementation should delete the file in the local file system and then call tree.deletedFile to complete the updating of the workspace resource tree to reflect this fact. If unsuccessful in deleting the file from the local file system, it should instead call tree.failed to report the reason for the failure. In either case, it should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted. The FORCE update flag needs to be honored: unless FORCE is specified, the implementation must use tree.isSynchronized to determine whether the file is in sync before attempting to delete it. The KEEP_HISTORY update flag needs to be honored as well; use tree.addToLocalHistory to capture the contents of the file before deleting it from the local file system.

An extending implementation should perform whatever pre-processing it needs to do and then call tree.standardDeleteFile to explicitly invoke the standard file deletion behavior, which deletes both the file from the local file system and updates the workspace resource tree. It should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted.

Returning false is the easy way for the implementation to say "pass". It is equivalent to calling tree.standardDeleteFile and returning true.

The implementation of this method runs "below" the resources API and is therefore very restricted in what resource API method it can call. The list of useable methods includes most resource operations that read but do not update the resource tree; resource operations that modify resources and trigger deltas must not be called from within the dynamic scope of the invocation of this method.

Parameters:
tree - the workspace resource tree; this object is only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method, and must not be used after this method has completed
file - the handle of the file to delete; the receiver of IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
updateFlags - bit-wise or of update flag constants as per IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
monitor - the progress monitor, or null as per IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
Returns:
false if this method declined to assume responsibility for this operation, and true if this method attempted to carry out the operation
Throws:
OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled. Cancelation can occur even if no progress monitor is provided.

IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)

deleteFolder

boolean deleteFolder(
IResourceTree tree,
                     
IFolder folder,
                     int updateFlags,
                     
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Implements IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor) where the receiver is a folder. Returns true to accept responsibility for implementing this operation as per the API contract.

In broad terms, a full re-implementation should delete the directory tree in the local file system and then call tree.deletedFolder to complete the updating of the workspace resource tree to reflect this fact. If unsuccessful in deleting the directory or any of its descendents from the local file system, it should instead call tree.failed to report each reason for failure. In either case it should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted. The FORCE update flag needs to be honored: unless FORCE is specified, the implementation must use tree.isSynchronized to determine whether the folder subtree is in sync before attempting to delete it. The KEEP_HISTORY update flag needs to be honored as well; use tree.addToLocalHistory to capture the contents of any files being deleted.

A partial re-implementation should perform whatever pre-processing it needs to do and then call tree.standardDeleteFolder to explicitly invoke the standard folder deletion behavior, which deletes both the folder and its descendents from the local file system and updates the workspace resource tree. It should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted.

Returning false is the easy way for the implementation to say "pass". It is equivalent to calling tree.standardDeleteFolder and returning true.

The implementation of this method runs "below" the resources API and is therefore very restricted in what resource API method it can call. The list of useable methods includes most resource operations that read but do not update the resource tree; resource operations that modify resources and trigger deltas must not be called from within the dynamic scope of the invocation of this method.

Parameters:
tree - the workspace resource tree; this object is only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method, and must not be used after this method has completed
folder - the handle of the folder to delete; the receiver of IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
updateFlags - bit-wise or of update flag constants as per IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
monitor - the progress monitor, or null as per IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
Returns:
false if this method declined to assume responsibility for this operation, and true if this method attempted to carry out the operation
Throws:
OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled. Cancelation can occur even if no progress monitor is provided.

deleteProject

boolean deleteProject(
IResourceTree tree,
                      
IProject project,
                      int updateFlags,
                      
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Implements IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor) where the receiver is a project. Returns true to accept responsibility for implementing this operation as per the API contract.

In broad terms, a full re-implementation should delete the project content area in the local file system if required (the files of a closed project should be deleted only if the IResource.ALWAYS_DELETE_PROJECT_CONTENTS update flag is specified; the files of an open project should be deleted unless the the IResource.NEVER_DELETE_PROJECT_CONTENTS update flag is specified). It should then call tree.deletedProject to complete the updating of the workspace resource tree to reflect this fact. If unsuccessful in deleting the project's files from the local file system, it should instead call tree.failed to report the reason for the failure. In either case, it should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted. The FORCE update flag may need to be honored if the project is open: unless FORCE is specified, the implementation must use tree.isSynchronized to determine whether the project subtree is in sync before attempting to delete it. Note that local history is not maintained when a project is deleted, regardless of the setting of the KEEP_HISTORY update flag.

A partial re-implementation should perform whatever pre-processing it needs to do and then call tree.standardDeleteProject to explicitly invoke the standard project deletion behavior. It should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted.

Returning false is the easy way for the implementation to say "pass". It is equivalent to calling tree.standardDeleteProject and returning true.

The implementation of this method runs "below" the resources API and is therefore very restricted in what resource API method it can call. The list of useable methods includes most resource operations that read but do not update the resource tree; resource operations that modify resources and trigger deltas must not be called from within the dynamic scope of the invocation of this method.

Parameters:
tree - the workspace resource tree; this object is only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method, and must not be used after this method has completed
project - the handle of the project to delete; the receiver of IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
updateFlags - bit-wise or of update flag constants as per IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
monitor - the progress monitor, or null as per IResource.delete(int,IProgressMonitor)
Returns:
false if this method declined to assume responsibility for this operation, and true if this method attempted to carry out the operation
Throws:
OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled. Cancelation can occur even if no progress monitor is provided.

moveFile

boolean moveFile(
IResourceTree tree,
                 
IFile source,
                 
IFile destination,
                 int updateFlags,
                 
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Implements IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor) where the receiver is a file. Returns true to accept responsibility for implementing this operation as per the API contract.

On entry to this hook method, the following is guaranteed about the workspace resource tree: the source file exists; the destination file does not exist; the container of the destination file exists and is accessible. In broad terms, a full re-implementation should move the file in the local file system and then call tree.moveFile to complete the updating of the workspace resource tree to reflect this fact. If unsuccessful in moving the file in the local file system, it should instead call tree.failed to report the reason for the failure. In either case, it should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted. The FORCE update flag needs to be honored: unless FORCE is specified, the implementation must use tree.isSynchronized to determine whether the file is in sync before attempting to move it. The KEEP_HISTORY update flag needs to be honored as well; use tree.addToLocalHistory to capture the contents of the file (naturally, this must be before moving the file from the local file system).

An extending implementation should perform whatever pre-processing it needs to do and then call tree.standardMoveFile to explicitly invoke the standard file moving behavior, which moves both the file in the local file system and updates the workspace resource tree. It should return true to indicate that the operation was attempted.

Returning false is the easy way for the implementation to say "pass". It is equivalent to calling tree.standardMoveFile and returning true.

The implementation of this method runs "below" the resources API and is therefore very restricted in what resource API method it can call. The list of useable methods includes most resource operations that read but do not update the resource tree; resource operations that modify resources and trigger deltas must not be called from within the dynamic scope of the invocation of this method.

Parameters:
tree - the workspace resource tree; this object is only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method, and must not be used after this method has completed
source - the handle of the file to move; the receiver of IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
destination - the handle of where the file will move to; the handle equivalent of the first parameter to IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
updateFlags - bit-wise or of update flag constants as per IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
monitor - the progress monitor, or null as per IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
Returns:
false if this method declined to assume responsibility for this operation, and true if this method attempted to carry out the operation
Throws:
OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled. Cancelation can occur even if no progress monitor is provided.

moveFolder

boolean moveFolder(
IResourceTree tree,
                   
IFolder source,
                   
IFolder destination,
                   int updateFlags,
                   
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Implements IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor) where the receiver is a project. Returns true to accept responsibility for implementing this operation as per the API contract.

On entry to this hook method, the following is guaranteed about the workspace resource tree: the source folder exists; the destination folder does not exist; the container of the destination folder exists and is accessible. In broad terms, a full re-implementation should move the directory tree in the local file system and then call tree.movedFolder to complete the updating of the workspace resource tree to reflect this fact. If unsuccessful in moving the directory or any of its descendents in the local file system, call tree.failed to report each reason for failure. In either case, return true to indicate that the operation was attempted. The FORCE update flag needs to be honored: unless FORCE is specified, the implementation must use tree.isSynchronized to determine whether the folder subtree is in sync before attempting to move it. The KEEP_HISTORY update flag needs to be honored as well; use tree.addToLocalHistory to capture the contents of any files being moved.

A partial re-implementation should perform whatever pre-processing it needs to do and then call tree.standardMoveFolder to explicitly invoke the standard folder move behavior, which move both the folder and its descendents in the local file system and updates the workspace resource tree. Return true to indicate that the operation was attempted.

Returning false is the easy way for the implementation to say "pass". It is equivalent to calling tree.standardDeleteFolder and returning true.

The implementation of this method runs "below" the resources API and is therefore very restricted in what resource API method it can call. The list of useable methods includes most resource operations that read but do not update the resource tree; resource operations that modify resources and trigger deltas must not be called from within the dynamic scope of the invocation of this method.

Parameters:
tree - the workspace resource tree; this object is only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method, and must not be used after this method has completed
source - the handle of the folder to move; the receiver of IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
destination - the handle of where the folder will move to; the handle equivalent of the first parameter to IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
updateFlags - bit-wise or of update flag constants as per IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
monitor - the progress monitor, or null as per IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
Returns:
false if this method declined to assume responsibility for this operation, and true if this method attempted to carry out the operation
Throws:
OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled. Cancelation can occur even if no progress monitor is provided.

moveProject

boolean moveProject(
IResourceTree tree,
                    
IProject source,
                    
IProjectDescription description,
                    int updateFlags,
                    
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Implements IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor) and IResource.move(IProjectDescription,int,IProgressMonitor) where the receiver is a project. Returns true to accept responsibility for implementing this operation as per the API contracts.

On entry to this hook method, the source project is guaranteed to exist and be open in the workspace resource tree. If the given description contains a different name from that of the given project, then the project is being renamed (and its content possibly relocated). If the given description contains the same name as the given project, then the project is being relocated but not renamed. When the project is being renamed, the destination project is guaranteed not to exist in the workspace resource tree.

Returning false is the easy way for the implementation to say "pass". It is equivalent to calling tree.standardMoveProject and returning true.

The implementation of this method runs "below" the resources API and is therefore very restricted in what resource API method it can call. The list of useable methods includes most resource operations that read but do not update the resource tree; resource operations that modify resources and trigger deltas must not be called from within the dynamic scope of the invocation of this method.

Parameters:
tree - the workspace resource tree; this object is only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method, and must not be used after this method has completed
source - the handle of the open project to move; the receiver of IResource.move(IProjectDescription,int,IProgressMonitor) or IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
description - the new description of the project; the first parameter to IResource.move(IProjectDescription,int,IProgressMonitor), or a copy of the project's description with the location changed to the path given in the first parameter to IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
updateFlags - bit-wise or of update flag constants as per IResource.move(IProjectDescription,int,IProgressMonitor) or IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
monitor - the progress monitor, or null as per IResource.move(IProjectDescription,int,IProgressMonitor) or IResource.move(IPath,int,IProgressMonitor)
Returns:
false if this method declined to assume responsibility for this operation, and true if this method attempted to carry out the operation
Throws:
OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled. Cancelation can occur even if no progress monitor is provided.
