Hi all,

My Eclipse plug-in needs to cache each resource before it is being modified by one of the contributors that extend my plug-in. Using IResourceChangeListener, I can detect when an extension modifies a resource, however this point is too late for me as I only get the final version of the resource, not the version before it is modified.

Is there a way to get notified before a resource is about to be changed in the workspace? I am thinking something very similar to IDocumentListener, where it provides documentAboutToChange(..) event where you can access to the non-changed document. Is there an extension to IResourceChangeListener --- or another listener that I can use --- that would give me the non-modified resource just before the access?

Best regards, thank you,

Edit: Marked as a question...
