Class SaveableComparison

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public abstract class SaveableComparison
    extends Saveable
    A saveable comparison is used to buffer changes made when comparing or merging model elements. A buffer can be shared between multiple typed elements within a comparison. The saveable is used by the comparison container in order to determine when a save is required.

    Clients may subclass this class.

      • isDirty

        public boolean isDirty()
        Returns whether the contents of this saveable have changed since the last save operation.

        Note: this method is called frequently, for example by actions to determine their enabled status.

        Specified by:
        isDirty in class Saveable
        true if the contents have been modified and need saving, and false if they have not changed since the last save
      • doSave

        public void doSave​(IProgressMonitor monitor)
                    throws CoreException
        Saves the contents of this saveable.

        If the save is cancelled through user action, or for any other reason, the part should invoke setCancelled on the IProgressMonitor to inform the caller.

        This method is long-running; progress and cancellation are provided by the given progress monitor.

        Specified by:
        doSave in class Saveable
        monitor - the progress monitor
        CoreException - if the save fails; it is the caller's responsibility to report the failure to the user
