All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface IExecutableExtensionFactory
This interface allows extension providers to control how the instances provided to extension-points are being created
by referring to the factory instead of referring to a class. For example, the following extension to the preference page
extension-point uses a factory called
Effectively, factories give full control over the create executable extension process.
The factories are responsible for handling the case where the concrete instance implement
Given that factories are instantiated as executable extensions, they must provide a 0-argument public constructor.
Like any other executable extension, they can configured by implementing
This interface can be used without OSGi running.
Creates and returns a new instance.
- Creates and returns a new instance.
- if an instance of the executable extension
