<title>Using Perspectives in the Eclipse UI</title>

In the Eclipse Platform a Perspective determines the visible
actions and views within a window. Perspectives also go well
beyond this by providing mechanisms for task oriented
interaction with resources in the Eclipse Platform,
multi-tasking and information filtering. In this article the
concepts behind perspectives are examined. The process for
perspective definition, extension and instantiation will also be
covered in detail with coding examples and sample scenarios.
