Dependency injection for Eclipse 3.x views available for Eclipse 4.7 M3

less than 1 minute read

You can now use dependency injection (di) in your Eclipse 3.x. views.You can enable this for a view via the new inject flag in the org.eclipse.ui.views extension.


public class SampleView extends ViewPart { @Inject IWorkbench workbench; private TableViewer viewer; @Override public void createPartControl(Composite parent) { viewer = new TableViewer(parent, SWT.MULTI | SWT.H_SCROLL | SWT.V_SCROLL); viewer.setContentProvider(ArrayContentProvider.getInstance()); viewer.setInput(new String[] { "One", "Two", "Three" }); viewer.setLabelProvider(new ViewLabelProvider()); // Create the help context id for the viewer's control workbench.getHelpSystem().setHelp(viewer.getControl(), "test7.viewer"); } // more stuff }

I hope that this will help Eclipse IDE extenders to move towards the Eclipse 4.x programming approach.
