I was looking for general documentation on the console extensions, but haven't found anything. I'm looking to add some extensions, but would like to know how the console is instantiated.

I assume that the console is instantiated once per user, but are the implementations of AbstractConsoleCommandExtension instantiated on each command, or is this created when the console is created?

I would to store some context variables between sub commands if possible so the user doesn't need to type all options every time. Is this possible?

So for example, instead of -:

cmd thing subcommand1 value1
cmd thing subcommand2 value2

we could have something like -:

cmd thing
cmd subcommand1 value1
cmd subcommand2 value2

Hi Chris,

the implementations for RFC 147 and Eclipse suggest that they are ordinary service instances, hence they also could keep some state in between calls.

As far as I can see, your use-case should work. Whether one should do that or not is another question and probably also depends on the concrete use-case, of course.
