File System Providers
This extension point is used to provide implementations of the abstract file system API org.eclipse.core.filesystem.IFileSystem. File system implementations control all aspects of querying and modifying a tree of files and directories in some backing store. Each file system extension is responsible for a file system namespace identified by a particular URI scheme.
<!ELEMENT extension (
point CDATA #REQUIRED
id CDATA #IMPLIED
name CDATA #IMPLIED
<!ELEMENT filesystem (
scheme CDATA #REQUIRED
scheme - The URI scheme of this kind of file system.
<!ELEMENT run EMPTY>
class CDATA #REQUIRED
class - The fully qualified name of a class that subclasses org.eclipse.core.filesystem.provider.FileSystem
Following is an example of a file system extension that provides access
to file systems using the "gopher" URI scheme.
"Gopher File System"
If this extension was defined in a plug-in with id "com.xyz.coolplugin", the fully qualified name
of this file system extension would be "com.xyz.coolplugin.gopherFS".
The platform provides a file system implementation for the "file" scheme.
