Description Jesse Glick 2004-05-01 17:17:11 UTC
Currently GPR relies on "push" semantics - you
register things and unregister them
programmatically. It might be useful to support
also "pull" semantics - register a provider (in
lookup) and be asked for items and be able to fire

Might be useful for (1) unit testing, (2) having
J2SE libraries always listed regardless of open
projects (if this is desirable).
