Refactoring Contributions

Identifier:
org.eclipse.ltk.core.refactoring.refactoringContributions

Since:
3.2

Description:
The extension point is used to define refactoring contributions. Refactoring contributions provide a means to dynamically construct a ready-to-execute refactoring instance based on a RefactoringDescriptor.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( contribution*)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>

  • point - a fully qualified identifier of the target extension point
  • id - an optional identifier of the extension instance
  • name - an optional name of the extension instance

<!ELEMENT contribution EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST contribution

id    CDATA #REQUIRED

class CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • id - The globally unique id of the contributed refactoring type. The id is usually a fully qualified identifier composed from the name of the contributing plugin and a unique identifier of the refactoring, e.g. org.eclipse.ltk.core.renameResource.
  • class - The fully qualified name of a refactoring contribution implementation which extends org.eclipse.ltk.core.refactoring.RefactoringContribution.

Examples:
The example below defines a refactoring contribution implemented by class RenameResourceRefactoringContribution for the rename resource refactoring with unique id org.eclipse.ltk.core.rename.resource:

   <extension
         point=
"org.eclipse.ltk.core.refactoring.refactoringContributions"
>
      <contribution
            class=
"org.eclipse.ltk.core.refactoring.RenameResourceRefactoringContribution"

            id=
"org.eclipse.ltk.core.rename.resource"
/>
   </extension>
