The Project API defines abstract projects. These are groupings of files built and manipulated as units. It is used for Ant-based projects but could support other scenarios such as makefiles. Modules can plug in project types which can recognize certain folders as being projects, and define their behaviors. Besides the visible Javadoc, this module permits a project to add implementations of org.netbeans.spi.queries.FileBuiltQueryImplementation, org.netbeans.spi.queries.SharabilityQueryImplementation and org.netbeans.spi.queries.FileEncodingQueryImplementation into the project lookup (rather than global lookup). The implementations will be consulted only in the case the relevant file belongs to that project (according to org.netbeans.api.project.FileOwnerQuery). This helps avoid the need to consult irrelevant query implementations.
