Package org.eclipse.ui.actions Description

Classes for actions and operations used in a workbench window, page, or part in the Eclipse Platform User Interface.

Package Specification

Actions for resource management, project build and workbench page management are provided to encourage a standard look and feel across views and editors contributed by independent system vendors. Base classes are also provided for selection oriented actions which enable or disable based upon selection in a part or viewer. These should be used by ISV's to define actions for menus, toolbars, and context menus.

Action which leads to resource modification should take advantage of the WorkspaceModifyOperation classes.  These classes are used to defer events which typically occur as a result of workspace changes (such as the firing of resource deltas, performance of autobuilds, etc.) until the outermost operation has successfully completed.  This deferral leads to an optimized, faster execution of resource modification because fewer deltas and autobuilds are performed.
