Looking for components for managing modular (plugin-esque) applications

Posted on 2006-04-28
Last Modified: 2013-12-03
With a very quick google, only looked up my street, but this is too small. We need applications with a much larger scale because our clients won't accept components from 'hobby' developers unless we can really guarantee the quality of the product & support.

We have an application at the moment that has a number of complementary, but entirely separate, 'mini' applications. In the new version of the main product, we have considered it would be a massive improvement if all these apps could be brought under the same interface as new modules.

Can someone point me towards some good components?

    Have a look at ... the trial component comes with your Delphi companion CD as well.

    I used to use the UIL Plugin Framework, but it is now acquired by TMSSoftware. You can find it at under Plugin Framework (VCL Component Pack). TMS Software is one of the more well-known companies offering good Delphi components, so it is not a "hobby developer" thing.

    For a really professional solution, look at Hydra 2.0 by RemObjects{84F6BA20-8322-4C2F-8D22-4409CD6DCDA6}
