Method Detail

initialize

protected void initialize()
Initialize this manager. This is called the first time a manager is retrieved programmatically. The manager should process necessary information from the extension manifest to initialize itself.

This implementation does nothing.


getService

protected static Service getService(java.lang.Class serviceClass)
                             throws javax.ide.spi.ProviderNotFoundException
Get a service. This implementation looks for a META-INF/services/className resource on the classpath of the context classloader. If such a resource exists, it must contain the fully qualified class name of an implementation class of the specified class.
Parameters:
serviceClass - the class of the service.
Returns:
the service.
Throws:
javax.ide.spi.ProviderNotFoundException - if an implementation of the service could not be located.

resetAllServices

public static void resetAllServices()
Resets all services, causing them to be recreated from scratch next time the getService( Class ) API is used.

Extension developers are strongly discouraged from using this method. It is called by the internal LookupProvider API to reset services when a new provider is registered.

Since:
2.0
