An external web browser which will be displayed on the preference page General/Web Browsers providing the os attribute matches and a file is found in at least one of the specified locations.


  • id - the unique ID of the browser.
  • factoryclass - the implementation class for the browser factory. This class must implement the org.eclipse.ui.browser.BrowserFactory interface.
  • name - the name of the browser (translatable).
  • os - comma separated list of operating systems on which to search for this browser at the specified locations. Only browsers with matching OS will be used.
  • executable - the executable filename

<!ELEMENT location (#PCDATA)>

Default install locations. these locations should not contain the initial path, as it will be substituted with all known drives. (e.g. on Windows, a location of "test.exe" would look for "c:\test.exe", "d:\test.exe", etc. for all known drives.



Examples:
The following is a sample usage of the browsers extension point:


 <extension point=
"org.eclipse.ui.browser.browsers"
>
  <browser
     id=
"org.eclipse.ui.browser.firefox"

     name=Firefox
     os=
"Win32"

     executable=
"firefox.exe"

     factoryclass=
"org.eclipse.ui.internal.browser.browsers.MozillaFactory"
>
     <location>Program Files\mozilla.org\Firefox\firefox.exe</location>
     <location>Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe</location>
   </browser>
 </extension>

Supplied Implementation:
The org.eclipse.help.base and org.eclipse.help.ui plug-ins contain implementation of browsers on common platforms. Other plug-ins can provide different implementations. In the preferences, the user can select the default browser from among available browsers.
