Interface IConsoleFactory

public interface IConsoleFactory

A console factory extension is responsible for opening a console in the console view. Extensions appear on a menu in the console view, and their openConsole method is called when the action is invoked. Implementations may choose to open a new console or activate an existing console. The extension point used to contribute a console factory is org.eclipse.ui.console.consoleFactories.

Following is an example console factory extension.

 <extension point="org.eclipse.ui.console.consoleFactories">
      label="Command Console"
An action appears in the console view's 'Open Console' drop-down menu with the corresponding label and optional icon. When the action is invoked, the specified class is instantiated and called to open a console, via the method openConsole().

Clients providing console factory extensions are intended to implement this interface.
