There are different strategies for installing the plugin into your application. E.g., you can include the plugin source code as a module in your sources or you can let your users install it as a plugin from your Update Center.

    It would be very nice to have the plugins published in an official Maven repository. They could then be added to platform projects later on. I did that locally for a plugin I want to be bundled with my app.

    Is there possible to integrate such module into project Netbeans Platform? I mean that my Netbeans RCP Platform will be appearing as darcula LAF.
