In my QuickFixProcessor, hasCorrections passes an in problemId.

How do I associate the errorIds with the problemIds? Do I need to be
defining an IMarker, an IProblem, or something else?

I'm implementing an
It's not clear to me whether this or an IQuickAssistProcessor (in JFace
package) is better, but since I'm specifically working on Java files, I
think this is where I want to be.

I'm trying to process errors flagged during annotation processing using

I found a comment somewhere (in a Javadoc?) that indicates in my
hasCorrections implementation, to see errors recorded in that fashion, I
need to be looking for problemId =
EclipseMessager.APT_QUICK_FIX_PROBLEM_ID. So I have that test in place,
but my hasCorrections method is never being called in order for me to
offer corrections.

In the extension description for org.eclipse.jdt.ui.quickFixProcessors,
it says the following:
"Since 3.2 an extension can specify which problem marker types it can
handle. It will only get problems of these types to process. If no
handled marker type are specified, the processor will only get problems
of types org.eclipse.jdt.core.problem,
org.eclipse.jdt.core.buildpath_problem and org.eclipse.jdt.core.task
(compatible to the behaviour prior to 3.2). "

I think this explains why my hasCorrections isn't being invoked, since
the errors I'm setting via the messager don't fit those types. So I
need to add a <handledMarkerTypes> element into the extension, but I
don't know what string to put there -- is there a defined markerType ID
that corresponds to APT_QUICK_FIX_PROBLEM_ID, or do I create my own ID
(and any pointers there would be appreciated -- I can see that I can
create my own marker type extension, but again don't see how the ID of
that gets associated to the errors being recorded by the annotation

Did you find any resolution to this? I'm also trying to use the QuickFixProcessor even putting what I think is the correct handledMarkerTypes I cant get anything to be called. I think enablement tag is missing/incorrect.

<markerType id="org.eclipse.jdt.ui.internal.spelling"/>
