Application Life Cycle

A class can hook into the application lifecycle of an e4 application by adding a property into the plugin.xml file for the product element.

<plugin>
   <extension
         id="product"
         point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.products">
      <product
            name="miworkplace"
            application="org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.swt.E4Application">
         ...
         <property
           name="lifeCycleURI"
           value="bundleclass://miworkplace/miworkplace.LifeCycleManager">
         </property>
      </product>
   </extension>
</plugin>

The bundle class consists of the bundle id and the full qualified class name.

public class LifeCycleManager {

	@PostContextCreate
	void postContextCreate(IApplicationContext appContext, Display display) {
		System.out.println("Context constructed");
	}

	@PreSave
	void preSave(IApplicationContext context) {
		System.out.println("Saving ...");
	}
}
