Why that "I*" (IResource, IJavaElement, ...)? [message #591914] Mon, 24 March 2003 18:10

Hi!

I'm trying to understand some parts of the Eclipse-API, and have one small
question. Many classes a plugin developer works with, are no classes but
interfaces. As far as I understand: The real implementation is hidden to
force developers to program against interfaces.
That's nice so far, but why then tag each with that "I"? And why that
comment in javadoc "This interface is not intended to be implemented by
clients." I think it's a bit confusing.

Perhaps someone can clear up my confusion.

regards, Sebastian.
