I have updated the WTP ISV documentation
to include references to all the extension points defined by WTP. This
documentation is automatically extracted from the schema files that describe
each extension point. As can be seen in M9, this documentation is not complete.
As plug-in owners you need to provide documentation about the extension
points you have defined. Specifically,
1. Please review the list of extension
points in the Web Standard Tools and J2EE Standard Tools Developer Guides
(Help->Help Contents) and ensure all of your extension points are listed.
2. For each extension point, ensure
the name and extension point are defined correctly in both the plug-in
manifest and the schema
3. Add information about each element
and attribute in the extension.
4. Add supplementary information including
a short description, examples, API information, and any supplied implementations
5. Specify the since version.
If the extension point is part of the
public API the version should be 1.0.
If it is internal place the following
comment instead of a version number:
extension point is internal and should not be used by any other plugins.</b>
Otherwise place the following comment
instead of a version number:
extension point is part of an interim API that is still under development
and expected to change significantly before reaching stability. It is being
made available at this early stage to solicit feedback from pioneering
adopters on the understanding that any code that uses this API will almost
certainly be broken (repeatedly) as the API evolves.</b>
I've already updated the copyright and
base extension element <extension> documentation in many of the WST
plug-ins. (I haven't had time to update all of the extension point schemas.)
Let me know if you need any help updating this documentation. This needs
to be complete for WTP 1.0. Bug 117755  is open to track these changes.
Please add comments once your schemas are updated.
Examples can be seen in the URI resolver
 and the cache .
