Eclipse Plug-in Developer Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Products

Identifier:
org.eclipse.core.runtime.products

Since:
3.0

Description:
Products are the Eclipse unit of branding. Product extensions are supplied by plug-ins wishing to define one or more products. There must be one product per extension as the extension id is used in processing and identifying the product.

There are two possible forms of product extension, static and dynamic. Static product extensions directly contain all relevant information about the product. Dynamic product extensions identify a class (an IProductProvider) which is capable of defining one or more products when queried.
