      Description

      Hi Ben,

      I need to be able to make a module aware of other modules, without requiring them.

      A specific example: formimportexport should be aware of formentry, be compiled against formentry.jar, and be able to say something like:
      if (ModuleUtil.isRunning("formentry"))
      rebuildXsn();

      But I also want people to be able to install formimportexport without being required to install formentry.

      Is this easy to do? If so, can you point me (or someone else) in that direction?

      -Darius
