How to properly implement Save As...? [message #909200] Thu, 06 September 2012 18:15 Go to next message

This is what I came up with:

public class SaveAsHandler {
	public static final String TAG = "com.example.saveAsTag"; //$NON-NLS-1$

	public boolean canExecute(@Named(IServiceConstants.ACTIVE_PART) MDirtyable dirtyable) {
		return dirtyable != null;

	void execute(IEclipseContext context, @Named(IServiceConstants.ACTIVE_PART) MPart part) {
		final IEclipseContext saveAsContext = context.createChild();
		saveAsContext.set(TAG, Boolean.TRUE);

		Object clientObject = part.getObject();
		ContextInjectionFactory.invoke(clientObject, Persist.class, saveAsContext, null);


In my @Perist-annotated save method I check for the existence of the save-as tag in the context and proceed accordingly.

Is this how it is supposed to be done?

I don't think that there is a "how it should be done" but if it works (and by just looking at it it does) it is pretty nice and concise.
