Where I can find schema sources for extension point?

Michele Pegoraro (1.8k14118103) | asked Jan 31 '13, 3:45 a.m.
I'm looking for a way to find out schema sources for the extension point. I've seen that not all the extension point has an accessible schema source, so I'm not able to correctly compile them in the plugin.xml.

For example and have no schema at all and I only get a Generic tag if I try to define them in my eclipse.

Where I can find the schemas in the SDK?

I tried to describe what you need to know about value providers here with examples.

You don't really need the schema files to there to compile your code. Since the schema is not made available in the binary plug-in I would assume it is not meant to be an API and not use it.

However, check the plug-in with id in case am mistaken.

I am having the same issue.

How did you resolve your issue?

I would appreciate any guidance you can provide.

If you use the keyboard content assist it will help u complete the schema. On my system that is ctrl-space in each part of the XML content.

Sam, I cannot use keyboard content assist if I don't have the xml source. For example it's the same with advisor or precondition extesions: I can arrive to <prerequisite> tag but I cannot have any hint on <requiredService> tag. In that case I know what to use from the forum, but there are other cases that I have no idea on what I can use. So I think it would be usefull to include these xml on next SDK.

The prerequisite tag is not in the schema.I don't know why, but it is not. You simply have to know what to do. E.g. as described in the Extensions workshop. You should be able to open the schema from the plugin providing the extension point.
