Is it necessary to add a plugin dependency when using extension points? [message #645766] Mon, 20 December 2010 08:35

I would like to contribute to an extension defined by plugin ABC plugin by adding my own extension point. There are no classes involved in the extension point, all I am providing through the xml is a few strings. I added the extension point but did not add a plugin dependency to ABC plugin. I have tested it, and it seems to work but I'm not sure if this will always be the case - so is there any occasion where just declaring my extension point without an explicit dependency will result in an error?
