Component Based Applications

Jan 18, 2008 at 12:30 PM

I'm really interested in the Add-In framework and am hoping to port an existing application I've made over to use this. I have a few queries though which I'd hope you could help me with:

  • Would you recommend the Add-In framewok for a component based application where the application is made up of a series of addins which may depend on each other? For example I have a host application which offers absolute minimal functionality and then have an addin A which acts as a jabber messenger which can only have a single connection to the server. Addin B and C both require Addin A to be present in order to function properly.

  • If you would, what would be the best way of implementing such a system using the Addin framework?

Many thanks!
