What is the best way to override resources in a plug-in? [message #526225] Fri, 09 April 2010 09:35 Go to next message

While it is trivial to create a class that they can call that would look
in several places for the resources, I don't see how we could affect the
registry. Basically views, commands and editors will be processed by
the workbench before we have a chance to substitute their values if needed.

Normally this kind of things is done via fragment bundles.
