This code snippet is taken from eclipse GEF plugin.


   <requires>
      <import plugin="org.eclipse.draw2d" export="true" version="2.1.1"/>
      <import plugin="org.eclipse.core.runtime" export="true"/>
      <import plugin="org.eclipse.core.resources" export="true"/>
      <import plugin="org.eclipse.ui" export="true"/>
   </requires>


within this requires tag you have place all your required (refered) plugin-ids.  export="true" suggests that
those libraries are used in the runtime.

Hmm i haven't tried yet, here is briefly what i wanna do:

I got a plugin which extends a view, i wanna print out the
time and the date

i wanna the user 2 be able 2 chose if he wants only 2 display
the time or the date does this work with your solution above?

i'll handle which extensions R activated or not in a preference page
i think that is possible and over this page i will modify the plugin.xml

once again is this possible with your given solution?

The given solution is for using of other plugins for your plugin.

Just try out.  Since I have done an IDE using eclipse for our server product, I am sure, it will work if you need to use the other plugins in your plugin.
