E4/Resources/Semantic File System
Semantic File System (SFS) represents an add-on to the Eclipse Resource Management that augments the Resources Plug-in API with an additional API to work with RESTful or REST-like resources. The implementation is based on EFS. The Semantic File System introduces a new SPI to be implemented by content providers that handle access via their specific communication protocol or proprietary client library.
