Breakpoint organizers categorize breakpoints based on some specific criteria. For example, a breakpoint organizer is provided to categorize breakpoints by project.
Organizers with the specified name will be automatically created by the Debug Platform and presented to the user as options for grouping breakpoints. The supplied class, which must implement org.eclipse.debug.ui.IBreakpointOrganizerDelegate, will be loaded only as necessary, to avoid early plugin activation.

class - Implementation of
org.eclipse.debug.ui.IBreakpointOrganizerDelegate that performs categorization. Since 3.3, the class may optionally implement
label - Label for this organizer which is suitable for presentation to the user.
icon - Optional path to an icon which can be shown for this organizer.
othersLabel - Optional label for this organizer which is suitable for presentation to the user to describe breakpoints that do not fall into a category supplied by this organizer. For example, if an organizer categorizes breakpoints by working sets, but a breakpoint does not belong to a working set, this label will be used. When unspecified, "Others" is used.
Following is an example of a breakpoint organizer extension.
In the above example, the supplied factory will be included in the list of options for grouping breakpoints ("Group By > Example Organizer"). When selected, the associated organizer will be used to categorize breakpoints.
The Debug Platform provides breakpoint organizers for projects, files, breakpoint types, and working sets.
