File System Providers

Identifier:
org.eclipse.core.filesystem.filesystems

Since:
org.eclipse.core.filesystem 1.0

Description:
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.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( filesystem)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>


<!ELEMENT filesystem ( run)>

<!ATTLIST filesystem

scheme CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • scheme - The URI scheme of this kind of file system.

<!ELEMENT run EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST run

class CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • class - The fully qualified name of a class that subclasses org.eclipse.core.filesystem.provider.FileSystem

Examples:
Following is an example of a file system extension that provides access to file systems using the "gopher" URI scheme.

 
   <extension id=
"gopherFS"
 name=
"Gopher File System"
 point=
"org.eclipse.core.filesystem.filesystems"
> 
       <filesystem scheme=
"gopher"
>
           <run class=
"com.xyz.fs.GopherFileSystem"
/> 
       </filesystem> 
   </extension>

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".

Supplied Implementation:
The platform provides a file system implementation for the "file" scheme.
