Release 3.5
Interface IUpdateSearchFilter

All Known Implementing Classes:
BackLevelFilter, BaseFilter, EnvironmentFilter, VersionedIdentifiersFilter

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 The org.eclipse.update component has been replaced by Equinox p2.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 IUpdateSearchFilter

Classes that implement this interface can be used to filter the results of the update search.

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.
