Interface PreferencesService


public interface PreferencesService

The Preferences Service.

Each bundle using this service has its own set of preference trees: one for system preferences, and one for each user.

A PreferencesService object is specific to the bundle which obtained it from the service registry. If a bundle wishes to allow another bundle to access its preferences, it should pass its PreferencesService object to that bundle.
