Interface IProcessFactory

public interface IProcessFactory

A process factory is used to override default process (IProcess) creation by the debug plug-in, and can be contributed via plug-in XML. When a new process is created via DebugPlugin.newProcess(..), the launch configuration associated with the specified launch is consulted for a process factory attribute (DebugPlugin.ATTR_PROCESS_FACTORY_ID). If present, the associated process factory is consulted to create a process for the launch. If not present a default process implementation is created and returned by the debug plug-in.

Following is example plug-in XML that contributes a process factory.

 <extension point="org.eclipse.debug.core.processFactories">
The attributes are specified as follows:
  • id - a unique identifier for this extension point
  • class - the fully qualified name of a class the implements IProcessFactory

Clients contributing a process factory are intended to implement this interface.
