Is there any interest in using Java Management eXtensions and/or the JBoss microkernel for this purpose?
It seems to me that the differences between server-side dynamic module loading and client side dynamic module loading are few, if any.
Based on my experience with Eclipse and JBoss I see a lot of similarities in architecture and approach. JMX is also generally gaining acceptance, and comes with a lot of useful features beyond dynamic loading.

One item that I think should be on the 2.2 plan is dynamic loading and unloading of Eclipse plugins. This would allow the user to install and uninstall features and plugins without restarting Eclipse. Currently Eclipse exits with a special return code and the native Eclipse executable re-invokes the java part. If there's not currently an open feature request on this (I didn't find one on a search) I'll be happy to open one. Thanks.
