IconDescription: The description of an icon. An icon is specified either as a key lookup in a resource file which resolves to a resource path relative to the resource file, or an absolute resource path. Use the createPathInstance( ClassLoader, String ) 55 or createResourceInstance( ClassLoader, String, String) 55 factory methods to create an instance of this class. To retrieve the URL of the icon, use getURL() 55 . This URL is normally a resource (i.e. classpath) URL, suitable for use when constructing an ImageIcon or other toolkit specific image type.
Version: Represents the version number of an extension or component. A version number is an immutable ordered sequence of integer values. Version numbers can be represented in two forms. When you construct a new Version object using a String representation of the version number, this String representation is stored and returned by the toString() 55 method. This form of the version number will retain any redundant leading zeros in any of the integer values which make up the version number. Conversely, in the canonical form, a version number does not retain leading zeros. The canonical form of new Version( ...
ID: Class used to identify objects. A ID is made up of the object type and a object name. In general, the object type is a generic type identifying similar objects and the object name is the specific name of the object. By convention, the object type identifier is a dash or dot separated string whose uniqueness comes from following the package naming scheme of an extension. In general, an IDE has a set of objects that extensions need to get a hold of. Such objects, which include actions and views for example, implment the javax.ide.Identifiable interface and have an ID that uniquely identifies them ...
MetaClass: A MetaClass describes a real java.lang.Class with the purpose of providing to an IDE class level information, and delaying the loading of that class to the last possible moment: when an instance of the class is required. A MetaClass binds the java.lang.Class object from its class name using the appropriate class loader. Once the class is bound, new instances can be created using the newInstance() 55 method.
MissingIconException: Exception thrown when IconDescription fails to find an icon.
