JFace provides infrastructure for creating and presenting preference pages within a Preference dialog. Pages implement IPreferencePage, usually by subclassing the default implementation PreferencePage or FieldEditorPreferencePage. The org.eclipse.ui.workbench plug-in defines an extension point for contributing preference pages to the workbench preference dialog, typically available via Window > Preferences. Note that you can use the preference page infrastructure without even using the preferences extension point if you want to present preference pages outside the standard workbench Preference dialog.
