Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.update.core
Interface IPlatformEnvironment

All Superinterfaces:
IAdaptable
All Known Subinterfaces:
IFeature, IFeatureReference, IImport, IIncludedFeatureReference, INonPluginEntry, IPluginEntry, ISiteFeatureReference
All Known Implementing Classes:
Feature, FeatureReference, Import, IncludedFeatureReference, IncludedFeatureReferenceModel, NonPluginEntry, PluginEntry, SiteFeatureReference, SiteFeatureReferenceModel

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 The org.eclipse.update component has been replaced by Equinox p2.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

Plug-in entry defines a packaging reference from a feature to a plug-in. It indicates that the referenced plug-in is to be considered as part of the feature. Note, that this does not necessarily indicate that the plug-in files are 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
