"Modular" app (how to build "plug.ins" for my app)
Posted on 2002-04-30
I need to build a "modular" application
What i mean is that i have 5 or 6 (for now) tiny applications.
Each app have an "option" form, to switch on or off some functionality.
What i need is that each app can "see" others, and "grab" the "options" and the settings of others apps.
There's no a "MAIN" app...
I try to better explain with a stupid example:
It capitalize the name of all files in a folder, with 3 option:
1) All chars capitalized
2) Each word 1st char
3) Only the first char
It moves all files in a folder into other folders, depending on the file name. Options can be:
1) Create new folder if needed
2) Move files only if more of X will go in the same folder
It fill a database with all file names found in a folder.
Options can be....what you want.
A customer can buy 1,2,or all 3 apps.
If he purchase "Capitalizer" and "Mover", he can launch one of the two apps, and see the 2 "forms" in the same app, and managing the option for all two apps.
Datas (file names) will be processed like if you use first "Capitalizer" then "Mover", or viceversa...
Is it possible?
