Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.debug.core.sourcelookup
Interface ISourceContainerType

All Superinterfaces:
ISourceContainerTypeDelegate

public interface ISourceContainerType
extends ISourceContainerTypeDelegate

A source container type represents a kind of container of source code. For example, a source container type may be a project or a directory. A specific project or directory is represented by an instance of a source container type, which is called a source container (ISourceContainer).

A source container type is contributed via the sourceContainerTypes extension point, providing a delegate to the work specific to the contributed type. Following is an example contribution.

 <extension point="org.eclipse.debug.core.sourceContainerTypes">
        <sourceContainerType
                name="Project"
                class="org.eclipse.debug.internal.core.sourcelookup.containers.ProjectSourceContainerType"
                id="org.eclipse.debug.core.containerType.project"
                description="A project in the workspace">
        </sourceContainerType>
 </extension>
 

Clients contributing a source container type implement ISourceContainerTypeDelegate.

3.0
