Hi all,

I am working on Eclipse XML editor source code and in particular on plug-in org.eclipse.wst.xml.ui.

I would like to know which class/classes are involved when Eclipse in closing, that means when user selects File->Exit (or similar on other not Windows OS).

Thanks
Marco

It depends what you want to achieve. E.g. you can override
preWindowShellClose of your WorkbenchWindowAdvisor, but there are other
similar life-cycle functions of your RCP application. If you are not
defining your own RCP appliaction, you could also add a listener of type
IWorkbenchListener via IWorkbench#addWorkbenchListener and handle the
preShutdown event.

Uhm...I have a problem.

I created a class which implements IWorkbenchListener

public class CleanResources implements IWorkbenchListener {

	@Override
	public void postShutdown(IWorkbench arg0) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		
	}

	@Override
	public boolean preShutdown(IWorkbench arg0, boolean arg1) {
		
		//TODO: my code here
		
		return false;
	}

}


But, of course, this class should be called by someone somewhere, shouldn't it? How?

Thanks and greets from Munich Smile

I answered this question in my previous reply (you need to register your
listener).

Uhm...thanks...but I do not understand in which classes of mine I have to register this listener

What I have to do I basically delete a file on the hard disk when Eclipse closes

Well, the documentation of IWorkbenchListener refers to
IWorkbench#addWorkbenchListener,so you need an instance of IWorkbench to
register, right? If you check the interface documentation of IWorkbench,
you are delegated to org.eclipse.ui.PlatformUI#getWorkbench, so here you
could go. I strongly recommend to study the (very short) interface
documentation of the related types, which usually give you the right answer.
