Site Type Factory

Identifier:
org.eclipse.update.core.siteTypes

Description:
The platform update mechanism supports pluggable site type implementations. A new site type can be registered in order to support alternate site layout schemes.

The siteTypes extension point allows alternate site implementations to be registered using a symbolic type identifier. Whenever the type is referenced using this identifier, the supplied factory is used to create the correct concrete site implementation.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( site-factory+)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>

  • point - must be specified as org.eclipse.update.core.siteTypes
  • id - must be specified. Identifies the new site type
  • name - optional displayable label for the new site type

<!ELEMENT site-factory EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST site-factory

class CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • class - fully qualified name of the factory class for the identified site type

Examples:
The following is an example of new site type registration.


   <extension
        id=
"custom"

        point=
"org.eclipse.update.core.siteTypes"

        name=
"Custom site"
>
      <site-factory
          class=
"com.xyz.update.CustomSiteFactory"
>
      </site-factory>
   </extension>

Supplied Implementation:
The platform supplies two standard implementations of site types. One representing the default update server type, and the other representing the local file system site.
