Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.update.core
Interface ICategory

All Superinterfaces:
IAdaptable
All Known Implementing Classes:
Category

Deprecated. The org.eclipse.update component has been replaced by Equinox p2. This provisional API was never promoted to stable API, and may be removed from a future release of the platform.

public interface ICategory
extends IAdaptable

Feature category definition. A site can organize its features into categories. Categories can be further organized into hierarchies. Each category name is a composed of the name of its parent and a simple identifier separated by a slash ("/"). For example tools/utilities/print defines a category that is a child of tools/utilities and grandchild of tools.

Clients may implement this interface. However, in most cases clients should directly instantiate or subclass the provided implementation of this interface.

Note: This class/interface is part of an interim API that is still under development and expected to change significantly before reaching stability. It is being made available at this early stage to solicit feedback from pioneering adopters on the understanding that any code that uses this API will almost certainly be broken (repeatedly) as the API evolves.

Since:
2.0
