RE: [cdt-dev] Toolchain updates

	Thanks again James. I think I'm getting close but I'm still not quite able to set the provider properly. Starting with a particular IConfiguration here's my code in a nutshell:

	ArrayList<String> providerIds = ... // the list containing my id

	// get the IConfigurationDescription for this IConfiguration. This
	// returns a CConfigurationDescriptionCache object
	ICConfigurationDescription configDescription = 

	// this throws a WriteAccessException exception
    	configDescription.setExternalSettingsProviderIds(providerIds.toArray(new String[0]));

	The call to setExternalSettingsProviderIds() seems to always fail because the CConfigurationDescriptionCache is read-only. The only time it seems writable is in very small window during creation.  I wonder if I need to somehow get my hands on an actual CConfigurationDescription rather than a *Cache object? If so how? My head is still spinning a bit trying to understand the relationship of the various description objects in the MBS.

	Thanks again for all your help,

In my case I only hook in the external provider when certain tool
options are enabled.

If you want to hook it in immediately after project creation then you
could register a listener for CProjectDescrtipionEvents with:

These events are fired during project description life cycle including
project serializing. A fair bit of CDT is drive from these events, so
they fire multiple times after project creation as scanner discovery
etc. takes place..
