Package org.eclipse.jface.text.reconciler Description

Provides a reconciler add-on for an ITextViewer. A  reconciler provides generic synchronization support  with the content of the document serving as the ITextViewer's input. There is no explicit model of what is synchronized.

Package Specification

IReconciler defines the concept of a reconciler. It collaborates with content type specific reconciling strategies (IReconcilingStrategy) which perform the synchronization for a given dirty region. The package contains a default implementation of IReconciler (Reconciler). Reconciler and MonoReconciler implements reconciling as a periodic background activity and folds co-located changes while being inactive.
