Problem markers can only be created for IResource objects. Has any one tried creating problem markers referring to files outside the workspace?

A bit of background to this problem. We have integrated our build tools in eclipse. Some of our tools are written in javascript which we would like to refer to in problem markers.
However, since these tools do not exist inside the workspace we cannot create IResource handles to them and hence the problem.

You could try creating the marker on another resource but setting the
path to the physical resource in question.

How do I set the path to the physical resource? Do I have to set some attribute in the marker?

Simply define your attribute name and set its value.

I guess I am missing something here. In the end we want the external file to open up when the user double clicks the marker in the problem view. Is there a way to hook up the double click action to my own function in which I can open the file?

Right now, there is no way of hooking up your own double click action to the view, this would call for yet another extension point, not that it would be a great addition anyway.

You can hook up a command to the view's pop menu and take it from there.

Sorry I don't understand exactly what you mean by hooking a command to the Problem View's popup menu. Do you mean making the user right click and select "Go to File" instead of just double clicking?
