Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.update.core
Interface INonPluginEntry

All Superinterfaces:
IAdaptable, IPlatformEnvironment
All Known Implementing Classes:
NonPluginEntry

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 The org.eclipse.update component has been replaced by Equinox p2.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 INonPluginEntry
extends IPlatformEnvironment, IAdaptable

Non-plug-in entry defines an arbitrary non-plug-in data file packaged as part of a feature. Non-plug-in entries are not interpreted by the platform (other than being downloaded as part of an install action). They require a custom install handler to be specified as part of the feature. Note, that defining a non-plug-in entry does not necessarily indicate the non-plug-in file is packaged together with any other feature files. The actual packaging details are determined by the feature content provider for the feature.

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
