Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jface.text.reconciler
Interface IReconciler

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractReconciler, MonoReconciler, Reconciler

public interface IReconciler

An IReconciler defines and maintains a model of the content of the text viewer's document in the presence of changes applied to this document. An IReconciler is a ITextViewer add-on.

Reconcilers are assumed to be asynchronous, i.e. they allow a certain temporal window of inconsistency between the document and the model of the content of this document.

Reconcilers have a list of IReconcilingStrategy objects each of which is registered for a particular document content type. The reconciler uses the strategy objects to react on the changes applied to the text viewer's document.

In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of IReconciler, extension interfaces are used to provide a means of evolution. The following extension interfaces exist:

  • IReconcilerExtension since version 3.0 introducing the ability to be aware of documents with multiple partitionings.

The interface can be implemented by clients. By default, clients use MonoReconciler or Reconciler as the standard implementers of this interface.
