Synchronize Participants

Identifier:
org.eclipse.team.ui.synchronizeParticipants

Since:
3.0

Description:
This extension point is used to register a synchronize participant. A synchronize participant is a component that displays changes between resources and typically allows the user to manipulate the changes. For example, CVS defines a workspace synchronize participant that allows showing changes between workspace resources and the resources at a remote location that is used to share those resources. Synchronize participants are typically created via a synchronize participant wizard or they can be created via a plug-in action and then registered with the ISynchronizeManager. The Synchronize View displays synchronize participants.

A participant is a generic component that provides access to creating a page and is shown to the user and a configuration that defines common configuration parameters for the page. The Synchronize View doesn't enforce any restrictions on how changes are shown to the user, and instead only manages the participants.
