|[pde-dev] [Question] : How to extend PDE classpath provider|
This is my first e-mail in this mailing list, so I’m kind of a newbie J
I went through a debugging of some PDE classes especially classpath initializers and classpath entry providers.
I wanted to contribute to 2 given classpath container providers, so I can attach additional information (like java doc) to the classpath entries in method getClasspathEntries.
First I had to do this for a pure web projects and I did it by contributing to the extension point
org.eclipse.jst.server.core.runtimeClasspathProviders and by extending org.eclipse.jst.server.core.RuntimeClasspathProviderDelegate and attaching the corresponding javadoc_location classpath entry attribute.
Now I would like to do the same for PDE based projects. I started to look around for the same extension point, but with no luck.
As far as I researched the classpath initializer (org.eclipse.pde.internal.core.RequiredPluginsClasspathContainer) for the PDE projects in its initialize method is not meant to
consider any custom classpath providers as the classpath for the pure web projects (org.eclipse.jst.server.core.internal.RuntimeClasspathContainerInitializer) does.
The PDE classpah initializer assumes that the java doc for a given plugin is located inside the plugin under doc folder.
Any hints on how I can extend the classpath provider for PDE projects will be much appreciated.
