A simple change in plugin.xml would allow other plugins
to launch the profiler.

ie. access to the profiler_ui.jar would allow other
developers to integrate with the profiler, thus raising
exposure for the profiler itself.

I myself have built such a plugin but I can release it
because 1 line of xml is missing from plugin.xml:

this:

<library name="profiler_ui.jar">
</library>

should read:

<library name="profiler_ui.jar">
<export name="*"/>
</library>

Profiler is an excellent plugin that would be greatly
enhanced if other plugins could make use of it.

Cheers,

Geoff

    Ok, done.
    I read mailing list, but we have holidays now and I live in another time zone, so I respond not so quick as you may be expected. :-)

    fantastic. Pls excuse any percieved impatience, that was not
    my intent.

    I'm just excited that your plugin's design lends itself well to
    integrating with plugins like mine.

    I will plan my next release to coincide with your next release.
    Any idea when that might be?

    Enjoy your holidays!

    Usually I release new version on monday. If I have had
    enough time on previous week to do someting.
    Next release will be 16 Jun, i.e. nearest monday, I have
    enough changes do to this.

    And of course there is no problem, that you send several
    messages, I just comment, why I answer only now. ;-)
