    The implementation of the <code>MimeDataProvider</code> interface that serves
    data from the folder hierarchy underneath the Editor/ folder on the system
    filesystem.

        </question>
-->
<answer id="arch-overall">
    
    <p>The module implements <code>MimeDataProvider</code> and registers this implementation
    in the default Lookup via META-INF/services. The implementation relies on
    <code>ProxyLookup</code> and <code>AbsrtactLookup</code> classes, which are used
    for looking up data (i.e. settings, services and other objects) from the
    hierarchy of folders on the system filesystem.
    </p>
    <p>The hierarchy starts in the Editors/ folder and uses subfolders for each
    part of MimePath, for which a user wants to get Lookup. Therefore, when
    asking for Lookup for 'text/x-java' MimePath the lookup will contain objects
    registered underneath the 'Editors/text/x-java' folder.</p>

<usecase id="declare-mime-type-specific-object-in-layer" name="Declare the mime specific object via xml layer">
This is the simpliest way of declaring, it is suitable for objects stored directly in mime specific
folders:
<pre>
&lt;filesystem&gt;
    &lt;folder name="Editors"&gt;
        &lt;folder name="text"&gt;
            &lt;folder name="x-java"&gt;
                &lt;file name="org-netbeans-modules-editor-mimelookuptest-MimeSpecificObject.instance"/&gt;
            &lt;/folder&gt;
        &lt;/folder&gt;
    &lt;/folder&gt;
&lt;/filesystem&gt;
</pre>

Lookup of this object will look like:
<pre>
MimeLookup lookup = MimeLookup.getMimeLookup("text/x-java");
MimeSpecificObject mso = (MimeSpecificObject) lookup.lookup(MimeSpecificObject.class);
</pre>
</usecase>

<usecase id="declare-mime-type-specific-folder-in-layer" name="Declare the object via xml layer in some specific folder using Class2LayerFolder.">
<p/>
Some objects are connected to some specific folder in mime specific layer folders, e.g.
FoldManagerFactory.class is placed in <b>FoldManager</b>
subfolder in the <b>Editors/&lt;mime-type&gt;/</b>.
Such objects can be registered
to the specific folder using interface <code>Class2LayerFolder</code>.
Let's register FoldManagerFactory.class to <b>FoldManager</b> folder.
First we need to implement the interface:
<pre>
public class FoldManagerClass2LayerFolder implements Class2LayerFolder{
    
    public FoldManagerClass2LayerFolder {
    }
    
    /* declaring the class */
    public Class getClazz(){
        return FoldManagerFactory.class;
    }
    
    /* assigning the declared class to folder */
    public String getLayerFolderName(){
        return "FoldManager";
    }

    /* we will not support InstanceProvider */
    public org.netbeans.spi.editor.mimelookup.InstanceProvider getInstanceProvider() {
        return null;
    }
    
}

</pre>

Then we need to register it to default lookup via META-INF/services registration. We need to create
            a folder structure <code>META-INF/services</code> and place there a file <code>org.netbeans.spi.editor.mimelookup.Class2LayerFolder</code>
            with the content <code>FoldManagerClass2LayerFolder</code>
<p/>
having this we can register appropriate object to specific folder:

<pre>
&lt;filesystem&gt;
    &lt;folder name="Editors"&gt;
        &lt;folder name="text"&gt;
            &lt;folder name="x-java"&gt;
                &lt;folder name="FoldManager"&gt;
                    &lt;file name="org-netbeans-modules-editor-MyFoldManagerFactory.instance"/&gt;
                &lt;/folder&gt;
            &lt;/folder&gt;
        &lt;/folder&gt;
    &lt;/folder&gt;
&lt;/filesystem&gt;
</pre>


Lookup of this object will look like:
<pre>
MimeLookup lookup = MimeLookup.getMimeLookup("text/x-java");
FoldManagerFactory foldManagerFactory =  (FoldManagerFactory) lookup.lookup(FoldManagerFactory.class);
</pre>
or, if there should be more instances of the FoldManagerFactory:
<pre>
MimeLookup lookup = MimeLookup.getMimeLookup("text/x-java");
Collection foldManagerFactories = lookup.lookup(new Lookup.Template(FoldManagerFactory.class)).allInstances();
</pre>

Notice, that the FoldManagerFactory object is found in "FoldManager" folder. It is not necessary for client
of the API to know about some folder structure.
<p/>
</usecase>

<usecase id="mime-lookup-initializer" name="Providing implemented MimeLookupInitializer">
It is the general way of adding mime specific object into the <code>MimeLookup</code>. Implementation of <code>MimeLookupInitializer</code> should be created and
            registered to default lookup via <code>META-INF/services</code> registration.
For details, please look at the simplified 
<code>TestMimeLookupInitializer</code> 
            in <code>mimelookup/test/unit</code> or <code>LayerMimeLookupInitializer</code>.
<b> Usage of MimeLookupInitializer is deprecated, please use MimeDataProvider instead in similar way </b>
</usecase>

<usecase id="instance-provider" name="Using InstanceProvider for declaration of compound folder objects and inheritance">
Demonstration of <code>InstanceProvider</code> and inheritance will be used together in one use case. Example of
editor context menu construction will be used. Each module can register its actions to 
editor context menu via xml layer. As context menu is mime type sensitive (java editor has 
different menu items than plain editor) the actions are registered into mime specific layer folders
to subfolder "Popup". When the context menu is constructing, the xml layer is scanned for the
action items located in the "Popup" subfolder of specific mime folder. In addition to
this there is inheritance mechanism used to share global actions (like Cut, Copy, Paste) over all mime
types context menus, thus not only the action items from actual mime type are considered. All
underlaying mime types are scanned also and the result is context menu with merged action items.
<p/>
For example JSP scriplet context menu should be merged from action items gathered over:
<ol>
<li> Editors/Popup - this is base level for global actions like Cut, Copy, Paste</li>
<li> Editors/text/x-jsp/Popup - items from jsp mime type</li>
<li> Editors/text/x-jsp/text/x-java/Popup - items specific to java scriplet in JSP document</li>
</ol>
<p/>

Construction mechanism is implemented in editor module in NbEditorKit class. The code 
responsible for construction uses MimeLookup and supports also embeded mime-types.
<code>MimeLookup</code> solves embeding and the gathering of the context menu items such simply as:
<p/>
<pre>
MimePath path = MimePath.parse("text/x-jsp/text/x-java");
Lookup lookup = MimeLookup.getLookup(path);
PopupActions actions = (PopupActions) lookup.lookup(PopupActions.class);
List popupActions = actions.getPopupActions();
</pre>

where PopupActions is implementation of <code>InstanceProvider</code> and PopupActions.class needs to be 
registered to "Popup" subfolder using <code>Class2LayerFolder</code> implementation. Let's register
this step by step.
<p/>

Because action items are instances of various objects like:
<ol>
<li>javax.swing.Action</li>
<li>javax.swing.JSeparator</li>
<li>org.openide.util.actions.SystemAction</li>
<li>java.lang.String</li>
</ol>
the <code>InstanceProvider</code> needs to be created for this:

<pre>
public class PopupActions implements InstanceProvider{
    
    List ordered;

    public PopupActions(){
    }
    
    public PopupActions(List ordered){
        this.ordered = ordered;
    }

    public List getPopupActions(){
        List retList = new ArrayList();
        for (int i = 0; i&lt;ordered.size(); i++){
            DataObject dob = (DataObject) ordered.get(i);
            InstanceCookie ic = (InstanceCookie)dob.getCookie(InstanceCookie.class);
            if (ic!=null){
                try{
                    if (String.class.isAssignableFrom(ic.instanceClass()) ||
                        Action.class.isAssignableFrom(ic.instanceClass()) ||
                        SystemAction.class.isAssignableFrom(ic.instanceClass()) ||
                        JSeparator.class.isAssignableFrom(ic.instanceClass())){
                        Object instance = ic.instanceCreate();
                        retList.add(instance);
                    }
                }catch(IOException ioe){
                    ioe.printStackTrace();
                }catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfe){
                    cnfe.printStackTrace();
                }
            } else{
                retList.add(dob.getName());
            }
        }
        return retList;
    }

    public Object createInstance(List ordered) {
        return new PopupActions(ordered);
    }
}

</pre>

This <code>InstanceProvider</code> needs to be declared in <code>Class2LayerFolder</code> implementation:

<pre>
public class PopupInitializer implements Class2LayerFolder{
    
    public PopupInitializer() {
    }
    
    public Class getClazz(){
        return PopupActions.class;
    }
    
    public String getLayerFolderName(){
        return "Popup"; //NOI18N
    }

    public InstanceProvider getInstanceProvider() {
        return new PopupActions();
    }

}

</pre>

Now, we just need to register PopupInitializer into default lookup via META-INF/services 
registration and the initialization is done.

</usecase>

            <hint>
                If your module calls foreign APIs which have a specific threading model,
                indicate how you comply with the requirements for multithreaded access
                (synchronization, mutexes, etc.) applicable to those APIs.
                If your module defines any APIs, or has complex internal structures
                that might be used from multiple threads, declare how you protect
                data against concurrent access, race conditions, deadlocks, etc.,
                and whether such rules are enforced by runtime warnings, errors, assertions, etc.
                Examples: a class might be non-thread-safe (like Java Collections); might
                be fully thread-safe (internal locking); might require access through a mutex
                (and may or may not automatically acquire that mutex on behalf of a client method);
                might be able to run only in the event queue; etc.
                Also describe when any events are fired: synchronously, asynchronously, etc.
