General Plugin Extension

This plugin type allows the developer to invoke custom code and to interact with the workspace of Oxygen XML Developer.

This plugin is the most general plugin type. It provides a limited API:

  • The interface GeneralPluginExtension - Intended for general-purpose plugins, kind of external tools but triggered from the Plugins menu. The implementing classes must provide the method process(GeneralPluginContext), which must provide the plugin processing. This method takes as a parameter a GeneralPluginContext object.
  • The class GeneralPluginContext - Represents the context in which the general plugin extension does its processing. The getPluginWorkspace() method allows you access to the workspace of Oxygen XML Developer.
