    Description

      Any application should be able to enrich spark infrastructure by services which are not available by default.

      Hence, to support such application extensions (aka "extesions"/"plugins") Spark platform should provide:

      • an API to register an extension
      • an API to register a "service" (meaning provided functionality)
      • well-defined points in Spark infrastructure which can be enriched/hooked by extension
      • a way of deploying extension (for example, simply putting the extension on classpath and using Java service interface)
      • a way to access extension from application

      Overall proposal is available here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dHF9zi7GzFbYnbV2PwaOQ2eLPoTeiN9IogUe4PAOtrQ/edit?usp=sharing

      Note: In this context, I do not mean reinventing OSGi (or another plugin platform) but it can serve as a good starting point.
