Loading dependency at runtime [message #635096] Mon, 25 October 2010 15:48

I am trying to define a plug-in that exposes an API to other plug-ins, but does not package the jars with the API. The jars will be loaded at run-time by a user action. I've been unable to define a manifest that does this and builds, and am not sure its possible.

To be more specific, I have a jar file that contains classes in the package org.foo.*. I want my plug-in to expose all of those classes. It appears to me that the only way I can get dependent plug-ins to build is to have the jar file in my plug-in. Is is possible to satisfy the build dependency of the dependent plug-ins, but not package the jar during build, because I will load it myself at run-time.

thanks
