|[eclipse-pmc] API Request: Rendering resource folders in JARs|
Right now, non-Java resources in JARs can only be IStorages, which cannot represent folders. We would like to add a new interface IJarEntryResource that would be the implicit type of non-Java resources in JARs. It would represent both folders and files for non-Java resources in the Java model. GOALS/BENEFITS: This will allow clients to navigate the non-Java resources tree inside JARs as easily as the non-Java resources tree in the workspace. CORRESPONDING BUG: need to render resource folders in JARs - https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=148944 RISKS: Minimal risks. Clients assuming that non-Java resources are files only will get what would appear as an empty file for a folder. However this assumption should not have been made in the first place according to the existing API. PERFORMANCE IMPACTS: none.
