I am creating an eclipse PDE plugin with multiple views. I want my views to be available only when the XML perspective is chosen. I know I can specify this by changing the target ID of the view in the plugin.xml file, but I cannot find the target ID for the XML perspective. Does anyone know the target ID for the XML perspective?

PDE's plug-in spy is very helpful for answering questions like this yourself:

The ID you're looking for is "org.eclipse.wst.xml.ui.perspective". You can find where it's declared at .
The perspectiveExtension adds your view to the layout when someone first opens or resets the perspective, but there's no restriction on your view only being opened in
one particular perspective. Every view can be opened in any perspective the user chooses.
