I got tired of manually converting d-specs to fully free so I wrote a
plug-in to do it for me. Of course I added it to my existing proof of
concept plug-in (com.kc2hiz.lpexextensions). When I deployed it (as a
.jar file) I copied it to c:\Program Files\IBM\SDP_91\plugins, deleted
the old .jar file there and restarted RDi. Couldn't find the class.

I renamed the new .jar file to the name of the previous .jar file
(com.kc2hiz.lpexextensions_1.0.0.201406191556.jar), restarted RDi and
voilà! The plug-in is found.

What is tying RDi's plug-in loader to that old, original file name?


ps for those interested in seeing the worst Java ever written:

pps is there anything like a 'plug-in exchange' where we can share stuff
like this? Or, in my case, learn how others write decent Java? :-)
Preferably some place where it's easy to download, edit and upload
changes, so the community can participate?
