I would like to ask you if the book touches the API for folding?

What is folding API ?

It's mean like this or not ??
According to RFC 822, folding is the process of splitting a header field into multiple lines.

Eclipse 3.0 added the folding capabilitites. This means the fragments of source files can be collapsed/expended according to specific rules.(for example: collapse/expand Javadoc comments, collapse/expand method content, etc).

It is a nice features which allows you to see on the editor exactly what parts of the source code you are interested in.

LOL. The folding doesn't stop the find usage. Maybe only visual search :-).

There's not a lot of documentation for the folding API right now. Here's a newsgroup posting which briefly outlines how you'd use it in your own code.

I wasn't aware of the folding API feature. I thought someone deleted my code.
