System Summary Sections

Identifier:
org.eclipse.ui.systemSummarySections

Since:
3.0

Description:
The Eclipse UI provides an AboutDialog that can be branded and reused by client product plugins. This dialog includes SystemSummary information that contains configuration details. By extending the org.eclipse.ui.systemSummarySections extension point clients are able to put their own information into the log.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( section+)>

<!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 section EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST section

id           CDATA #IMPLIED

sectionTitle CDATA #REQUIRED

class        CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • id - an optional, unique name that will be used to identify this system summary section
  • sectionTitle - a translatable name that will be displayed as the title of this section in the system summary
  • class - The fully qualified name of a class that implements org.eclipse.ui.about.ISystemSummarySection. The class must provide a default constructor.

Examples:
Following is an example of a systemSummarySections extension:

<extension
 point=
"org.eclipse.ui.systemSummarySections"
>
 <section
  id=
"RCPBrowser.CookieDetails"

  sectionTitle=
"Browser Cookies"

  class=
"org.eclipse.ui.examples.rcp.browser.CookieConfigDetails"
/>
</extension>

Supplied Implementation:
The Workbench uses this extension point to provide the following sections in the system summary dialog:
  • System properties: The properties returned by java.lang.System.getProperties().
  • Features: The installed features.
  • Plug-in Registry: The installed plug-ins and their status.
  • User Preferences: The preferences that have been modified from their default values.
