 2        filesystem, you should use the <code class="methodname">getPluginHome()</code>
 3        API of the <code class="classname">EditPlugin</code> class. To signal that you
 4        use the plugin home API you have to set the
 5        <code class="filename">plugin.<em class="replaceable"><code>class
 6        name</code></em>.usePluginHome</code> property to
 7        <code class="constant">true</code>. Even if your plugin doesn't create any files,
 8        you should set the property to <code class="constant">true</code>, so that e. g.
 9        the plugin manager knows that there is actually no data in favor of not
10        knowing if there is any data and thus displaying that it doesn't know
11        the data size. See the documentation for the <a class="ulink" href="../api/org/gjt/sp/jedit/EditPlugin.html" target="_top"><code class="classname">EditPlugin</code></a>
12        class for details.</p></div><div class="navfooter"><hr><table width="100%" summary="Navigation footer"><tr><td width="40%" align="left"><a accesskey="p" href="plugin-tips-non-java-libraries.html">Prev</a> </td><td width="20%" align="center"><a accesskey="u" href="plugin-tips.html">Up</a></td><td width="40%" align="right"> </td></tr><tr><td width="40%" align="left" valign="top">Bundling Additional Non-Java Libraries </td><td width="20%" align="center"><a accesskey="h" href="index.html">Home</a></td><td width="40%" align="right" valign="top"> </td></tr></table></div></body></html>
