public interface IFileMatchAdapter
This interface serves to map matches to
IFileinstances. Changes to those files are then tracked (via the platforms file buffer mechanism) and matches updated when changes are saved. Clients who want their match positions automatically updated should return an implementation of
getFileMatchAdapter()method in their search result implementation. It is assumed that the match adapters are stateless, and no lifecycle management is provided.
Clients may implement this interface.
