Editor Guarded Sections API

Allow to protect existing text

Feb 17 '16; API spec. version: 1.33; affected top-level classes: GuardedSectionManager; made by: sdedic
Added method to create guarded block on top of existing text.

DocumentGuards API

May 21 '14; API spec. version: 1.29; affected top-level classes: GuardedRegionMarker DocumentGuards; made by: sdedic; issues: #244679

APIs exposed and actually used on GuardedDocument in editor.lib module is now declared in Editor Guarded Sections. Clients may depend on Guarded Sections instead of on fading-away editor.lib module.

Dependency on openide.text eliminated, new SPI GuardedRegionMarker is added for Documents that are willing to style their contents according to guarded areas.

Ability run guarded readers/writers when the content of the guarded section's content is set

Nov 25 '12; API spec. version: 1.20; made by: jlahoda; issues: #221844

When this option is set, setting the content of a GuardedSection will pass the data through the given guarded writer and back through the given guarded reader, to ensure the result is the same as if it would be read from the disk.

Note that this new mode is not fully compatible with the original mode, e.g. all the set methods of all the GuardedSection classes will throw IllegalStateException if invoked inside the write&read part.

GuardedSectionsProvider supports Charset

Jun 19 '07; API spec. version: 1.0; made by: jpokorsky; issues: #99363
In order to use proper encoding by guards impl it is necessary to change GuardedSectionsProvider to accept encoding rather as java.nio.Charset instance than as a plain encoding name.
