<B>New ECF UI Extension Points</B>
<TD vAlign=top width="70%">
There are two new ECF UI extension points: <b>org.eclipse.ecf.ui.configurationWizards</b> and <b>org.eclipse.ecf.ui.connectWizards</b>.
These two extension points allow provider implementations to specify wizard user interfaces for the creation/configuration and connection
of ECF IContainer instances.
Here's an exmample of using the <b>org.eclipse.ecf.ui.connectWizards</b> extension to supply a connect
wizard for a given container type name. The following would be placed in your plugin's plugin.xml:
name=&quot;My Client Connect Wizard&quot;
Note the <b>containerFactoryName</b> (""). This value must match the name of the provider container factory registered under the <b>org.eclipse.ecf.containerFactory</b>
extension point. The specified <b>class</b> ("") must implement the <b>org.eclipse.ecf.ui.IConnectWizard</b> interface.
Clients can then display this wizard using the following:
ConnectWizardDialog cwd = new ConnectWizardDialog(window.getShell(),
window.getWorkbench(), new ContainerHolder(container,
Where the container is a non-null IContainer instance to connect.
Here's a wizard used for the generic provider:
