Hey All,
I have been checking out various 3rd party plugin frameworks, and reading alot about using plugins and dlls with delphi...
and I was wondering if some people here could shed some light on thier preferred method of using plugins.

What 3rd party component do you like to use?
AthraSofts SmartPlugin? DragonSoft? TMS's NUCA (which used to be UIL)? or PSD's AppFW? Any Others?

Im inexperienced when dealing with dlls and plugins. I have only created one dll before for a ftp server, and I was lucky it had a nice delphi sample to help me :)
So I need a component that will be easy for me to understand and implement (alot of sample prjs would be nice).

Should I use one of the above components/wizards or just do it from scratch?
Thanx for your time.....

It would be better for you if you develop your own plugin system. Thus it will give you all functionality you need, which might not happen with component you mentioned above. It all depends what you are trying to achieve...

Since you are inexperienced I suggest you use a ready and tested component/package/whatever to manage/use your plugins. It's taking the easy way out, but in your case that would be the best solutions. You can find lots of code, should you still want to do it yourself. There are many pitfalls to take in account when creating your own plugin system.
