Teaching DLTK third party APIs: What is a HostCollection? [message #36749] Tue, 07 April 2009 06:58

Hello everyone.

Trying to find a good place to add a mechanism to make third party APIs
(which are typically not implemented in script files themselves, but are
rather extensions of/in the underlying JavaScript interpreter (think of
JScript (with COM access, etc.) in WSH & MS Office, JavaScript in Adobe
products with application specific extensions, etc.) I have come across
a class called "HostCollection" (in
org.eclipse.dltk.internal.javascript.typeinference).

My naive interpretation of its name would be "it's a collection of
hostnames, IP addresses or so", but that seems far from it, as it seems
to be used in code completion for JavaScript.

Can someone shed some light on what this class is and does, or on the
workings of code completion in the DLTK or the JavaScript implementation
with regards to hooking up meta information about third party APIs; even
adding "dummy source files" which contain the API interfaces would be
okay for starters?

Thanks in advance.



With best regards

Clemens Anhuth
