Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.team.core
Interface IFileContentManager


public interface IFileContentManager

This is the API to define mappings between file names, file extensions and content types, typically used by repository providers in order to determine whether a given file can be treated as text or must be considered binary. Mappings for names and extensions can either be contributed via an extension point or via this interface. For methods that determine the content type for a given file, the following rules apply:

    • Mappings for the entire file name take precedence over mappings for the file extension only.
      User-defined mappings take precedence over plugin-contributed mappings
  • If a mapping is added for a name or an extension that already has a mapping which has been contributed by a plugin, it overrides the one contributed by the plugin. If the user-defined mapping is deleted, the plugin-contributed mapping is valid again. This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

    Since:
    3.1
    See Also:
    Team.getFileContentManager()

    Method Detail

    getType

    int getType(
    IStorage storage)
    Get the content type for a given instance of IStorage. User-defined mappings take precedence over plugin-contributed mappings; further, mappings for the entire file name take precedence over mappings for the file extension only.

    Parameters:
    storage - the instance of IStorage.
    Returns:
    one of Team.UNKNOWN, Team.TEXT or Team.BINARY.
    Since:
    3.1

    isKnownFilename

    boolean isKnownFilename(
    String filename)
    Check whether the given file name is assigned to a specific type in the content type registry.

    Parameters:
    filename - the file name to check for
    Returns:
    True if the file name is registered in the system and assigned to a content type, false if the file name is unknown.
    Since:
    3.1

    isKnownExtension

    boolean isKnownExtension(
    String extension)
    Check whether the given file extension is assigned to a specific type in the content type registry.

    Parameters:
    extension - the extension to check for
    Returns:
    True if the extension is registered in the system and assigned to a content type, false if the extension is unknown.
    Since:
    3.1

    getTypeForName

    int getTypeForName(
    String filename)
    Get the content type for a given file name.

    Parameters:
    filename - The file name
    Returns:
    one of Team.UNKNOWN, Team.TEXT or Team.BINARY.
    Since:
    3.1

    getTypeForExtension

    int getTypeForExtension(
    String extension)
    Get the content type for a given file extension.

    Parameters:
    extension - The extension
    Returns:
    one of Team.UNKNOWN, Team.TEXT or Team.BINARY.
    Since:
    3.1

    addNameMappings

    void addNameMappings(
    String[] names,
                         int[] types)
    Map a set of file names to a set of content types and save the mappings in the preferences. Already existing mappings for these file names are updated with the new ones, other mappings will be preserved.

    Parameters:
    names - The file names
    types - The corresponding types, each one being one of Team.UNKNOWN,Team.TEXT or Team.BINARY.
    Since:
    3.1

    addExtensionMappings

    String[] extensions,
                              int[] types)
    Map a set of file extensions to a set of content types and save the mapping in the preferences. Already existing mappings for these extensions are updated with the new ones, other mappings will be preserved.

    Parameters:
    extensions - The extensions
