<h6 class=CaptionFigColumn id=header>Description: </h6>This extension point provides extensibility to the Open Data Access (ODA) Designer UI framework, through which an user may define an ODA data source design.
<br>An ODA driver that implements the ODA run-time extension point may optionally extend this ODA UI extension point to provide a customized ODA designer.</p>

Allows providers to provide customized dialog page(s) support for an user to create a new ODA data access design definition.
The element defines children elements for the data source wizard page(s) and editor page(s).</p>
<ul class=ConfigMarkup id=attlistDesc>
<li><b>id</b> - A fully qualified ID that uniquely identifies the ODA data source extension within an ODA consumer application's environment. Its value must match that of the <i></i> attribute defined in the <i>org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.oda.dataSource</i> extension of the same ODA driver.
If implementing the <i>org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.connectionProfile</i> extension point, its value must also match that of its <i></i> attribute.</li>

This element defines the customizable behavior of the new data source wizard dialog that allows an user to create a new ODA data source definition. It includes specifying the customized wizard page that an extension would add to the new data source wizard dialog (</p>
<ul class=ConfigMarkup id=attlistDesc>
<li><b>windowTitle</b> - The customized title of the new data source wizard window.</li>
<li><b>includesProgressMonitor</b> - Indicates whether the new data source wizard should include a progress monitor. Default value is "true".</li>
<li><b>pageTitle</b> - The page title of the new data source wizard's first customized page. Its value, if specified, overrides any title that may have been set by the wizard page's constructor.</li>
<li><b>pageClass</b> - A fully quailfied class name that implements the first wizard page for creating a new customized ODA data source definition.
<br>This class must extend from the ODA abstract base class, <i></i>.</li>

<h6 class=CaptionFigColumn id=header>API Information: </h6>[<b>Experimental</b>] This package API and extension point are going through iterative development cycles, and will likely change.
An extension must implement the related dialog pages defined in the extension's schema. See the abstract base classes' JavaDoc documentation in the <i></i> project for more information.
<h6 class=CaptionFigColumn id=header>Supplied Implementation: </h6>The plug-in <i>org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.oda.flatfile.ui</i>, supplied with the Eclipse DTP Connectivity source, provides an example for implementing a simple ODA Design UI extension.
