---------------------------------------

Github user ottobackwards commented on the issue:

    https://github.com/apache/metron/pull/530
  
    @mmiklavc The documentation also changes with METRON-942, as that includes 
the REST installation steps.  If we can get these two PR's through, then follow 
on with improved docs, it may make better sense.  Also, even then, it will need 
to be redone when the UI has support for installing parser extensions.

> The success of the Metron project will be greatly dependent on community 
> participation, and with that the ability to adapt and extend Metron without 
> having to maintain a fork of the project.
> As organizations and individuals look to extend the Metron system with custom 
> parsers, enrichments, and stellar functions that may be proprietary in 
> nature, the ability to develop and deploy these extensions outside the Metron 
> code base is critically important.
> To that end, and after community discussion and proposal we create or 
> formalize the 'plugin' development story in Metron.  
> The proposal is to adapt the Apache Nifi NAR system for use in Metron.  This 
> will provide the system with:
> * archetype(s) for developer projects and independent development
> * defined packaging and metadata for 'plugin' products
> * loading and instantiation with classloader isolation capabilities
> * removing the necessity for shading plugin jars
> These capabilities will also enable other features, such as plugin lifecycle, 
> plugin configuration+redeployment, and other things.
> The plugin archetypes and their installation will be a followon
