name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>

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

  • label - action label to appear in menu
  • icon - optional plug-in relative path to an icon to appear with the action
  • class - class implementing org.eclipse.ui.console.IConsoleFactory that will be called when the associated action is invoked

Examples:
The following is an example of a console factory extension point:

<extension point=
"org.eclipse.ui.console.consoleFactories"
>
  <consoleFactory 
     label=
"Command Console"

     class=
"com.example.CommandConsoleFactory"

     icon=
"icons/cmd_console.gif"
>
  </consoleFactory>
</extension>

This extension will cause an entry to appear in the console view's Open Console drop-down menu labelled Command Console with the specified icon. When the action is invoked by a user, the method openConsole() on the class com.example.CommandConsoleFactory will be called.
