Hi,

The create project facets and modify project facet wizards provide two
things.
1. A means of adding / modifying project facets.
2. A very flexible and extendible wizard framework.

Is it possible to reuse the wizard framework the gui part for some other
custom wizards where there is a core wizard and one can allow third
parties to plug into the core wizard, wizard pages the same way facet
wizard pages are added?

I had asked this question. Is it possible?

The faceted project framework is not a generic extensible wizard
framework, so if I am understanding what you are trying to do correctly,
it is not possible.

Faceted project framework has some very specific requirements for the
wizard framework that is part of it. These requirements preclude that
code from being reusable as a generic extensible wizard framework.

Note that there are number of generic extensible wizard frameworks
already in existence. One such framework is the data model wizard
framework that is also part of WTP. Take a look at the following two
plugins:

org.eclipse.wst.common.frameworks
org.eclipse.wst.common.frameworks.ui

The following packages are relevant:

org.eclipse.wst.common.frameworks.datamodel
org.eclipse.wst.common.frameworks.internal.datamodel.ui
