JPF (Java Plugin Framework) is a general-purpose plug-in framework intended to help building scalable, extendable Java applications with low cost of maintenance. The framework is specially designed to be easily included into Java project of any kind.
JPF provides a runtime engine that dynamically discovers and loads "plug-ins". A plug-in is a structured component that describes itself to JPF using a "manifest". JPF maintains a registry of available plug-ins and the functions they provide (via extension points and extensions).
