This type of plugin allows you to invoke custom code to interact with the workspace in Text mode.

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

  • GeneralPluginExtension interface - 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.
  • GeneralPluginContext class - Represents the context in which the general plugin extension does its processing. The getPluginWorkspace() method allows you access to the workspace of Oxygen XML Editor.
