Target Provisioners

This extension point is deprecated

Identifier:
org.eclipse.pde.ui.targetProvisioners

Since:
3.3

Description:

This extension point is used to register new target plug-in provisioners. Each plug-in provisioner is listed when the user attempts to add plug-ins from the PDE Target Platform's Preference Page. The selected provisioner is responsible for providing the locations of directories which contain plug-ins the user wants to add to the Target Platform.

  • id - a unique identifier of the provisioner
  • name - human readable name of the provisioner
  • icon - a relative path of an icon that will be used to visually represent the provisioner.
  • class - a class that provides a wizard for the user to add plug-ins through the provisioner. The value of this attribute is the fully qualified name of the Java class that implements org.eclipse.pde.ui.IProvisionerWizard.

<!ELEMENT description (#PCDATA)>

human-readable description of the provisioner



Examples:

The following is an example of the extension point:


   <extension
         point=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.provisioners"
>
      <provisioner
            class=
"org.eclipse.pde.internal.ui.wizards.provisioner.FileSystemProvisionerWizard"

            id=
"org.eclipse.pde.ui.directory"

            name=
"%provisioner.file.name"
>
         <description>
               %provisioner.file.description
         </description>
      </provisioner>
   </extension>

Supplied Implementation:

PDE supplies a File System provisioner extension to add plug-ins from the file system, and an update site provisioner to add plug-ins from repositories.
