Hi,

is it ok to use packages
org.eclipse.debug.internal.ui.viewers.model.provisional and
org.eclipse.debug.internal.ui.viewers.provisional as API? From what I have
seen during the last releases these packages have become stable, and JDT
debugging uses them already. Or are there plans to refactor them into usual
API packages?

Additionally I noticed that JDT uses internal classes like
org.eclipse.debug.internal.ui.model.elements.ElementContentP rovider in its
implementation. Are there plans to make these classes API as well? In
general, shouldn't JDT debug tooling be treated like any other client?
Currently it seems to me to be more equal than others.. ;)

Regards
Christian

I think asking this question on platform-debug-dev mailing list is a
better idea. In Eclipse, provisional API can still mean that the API may
change, so you have to becareful.
