[New Article] Support Application Plugins 2 - Dynamic Plugin Search


This article is an extension to my previous article about plugins.

The last article showed how one can create a plug-in architecture for the application. One of the comments I got on that article mentioned that it should be possible to rid the user of the need to register any custom plugins inside the host Application’s config file.

That comment also mentioned how one would go about this. Reading this, I’ve decided to take the challenge and extend my previous demonstration and make the example application search dynamically for plugins within its own directory."


The article is here. I'd appreciate any comments you may have. Enjoy :)

New Skin, New Host...
