Interface IPluginProvider

  • public interface IPluginProvider
    A plugin provider is responsible for serving up IPlatformPlugins to whoever is asking, typically IPluginManager. The plugin provider is not responsible for integrating the plugins into the platform. It's only role is to render plugin definitions, IPlatformPlugins. A plugin provider might load plugin definitions from an xml file, or a properties file. You might also create a plugin provider that creates plugins programmatically. It won't matter what mechanism you use to define your plugins so long as you implement IPluginProvider.
