<h6 class="CaptionFigColumn SchemaHeader">Identifier: </h6>org.eclipse.wst.common.uriresolver.resolverExtensions<p></p>
<h6 class="CaptionFigColumn SchemaHeader">Since: </h6><b>This extension point is part of an interim API that is still under development and expected to change significantly before reaching stability. It is being made available at this early stage to solicit feedback from pioneering adopters on the understanding that any code that uses this API will almost certainly be broken (repeatedly) as the API evolves.</b>
<h6 class="CaptionFigColumn SchemaHeader">Description: </h6>The URI Resolver Extensions point allows clients to register custom URI resolvers that will be used in the resolution of resources by tools such as editors, generators, validators, and wizards.<p></p>
