> This JIRA houses the attempt to create a plugin system for OFBiz based on 
> gradle. The plugin system should have the following features:
> - It is independent of the version control system, file system, operating 
> system and any other environment tools surrounding OFBiz. Instead, it should 
> be fully integrated with OFBiz.
> - It should unify the way OFBiz is extended, both for official supported 
> plugins and for third party plugins
> - The plugin system takes advantage of the concept of a "component" in OFBiz 
> and utilize it as the building block for plugins
> - The plugin system supports the concepts of "Repository" and "Dependency 
> Management". If possible, the plugin system will utilize these concepts 
> directly from Gradle instead of writing them from scratch.
> The initial API for the plugin system will be small and expands as needed. 
> The API should include the following gradle tasks:
> - createPlugin: creates a new plugin based on templates and place it in the 
> plugins directory
> - installPlugin: Activate a plugin and run Install. Plugin must exist in 
> /specialpurpose
> - uninstallPlugin: Deactivate a plugin and run its uninstall script
> - publishPlugin: publish a plugin to local maven repository
> - pullPlugin: download a plugin with its dependencies (plugins) from a 
> repository and install them
