@Deprecated public interface Class2LayerFolder<T>
MimeDataProviderthat can be used to further specify where to look for instances of a certain class and how to create them.
The implementations of this interface should be registered among the services
in the default lookup using
MimeDataProvider allowes to register instances
in a hierarchy of folders on the system filesystem (modules XML layers). The
hierarchy starts with the Editors/ folder and then contains subfolders for
each mime type that has some registered objects. So, for example there might
be settings registered for the mime type identified by the following mime
path 'text/x-jsp/text/x-java' and they would be located in the folder
'Editors/text/x-jsp/text/x-java' on the system filesystem. For more details
on the implementation of the default
MimeDataProvider please see
the SPI package description.
The implementations of this interface are used for determining the structure
under the folder belonging to a given mime type. This interface allows to
tell the default
MimeDataProvider that instances of a certain
class are registered in a specific subfolder rather then under the folder
belonging to the mime type. When looking up instances of such a class the
MimeDataProvider will not look in the mime type's folder,
but in its subfolder, which name it will obtain by calling the implementation
of this interface.
Therefore, for example instances of the
can be registered in the 'Editors/text/x-java/foldManager' folder and they
will be properly retrieved when calling
