Re: [ecf-dev] Optionally Using ECF Functionality

Hi Rem,

  There are three pieces of information I want to pass:

1. Container name (ecf.irc.irclib)
2. username
3. server (IRC name)

This information comes from other places in our app. I'd like to pass this info as part of a schema.

Well, we don't want to necessarily include ECF at all.  If a user
opts in and installs ECF we'd like communication features in our
perspective.  Essentially we'd like to detect an extension point at
runtime, query for the presence of the necessary ECF plugins, and via
the schema create the ECF view in our perspective.  The extension
point schema would allow us to create the view without having to
reference ECF classes (avoiding the build and tight coupling issue.)

If you want a view to show up in a perspective, you can just declare a org.eclipse.ui.perspectiveExtensions extension and contribute the view to your perspective there.
