  • Patent number: 10929525
    Abstract: The disclosure provides an approach for installing and deploying a plug-in on a computer system so as to extend an extensible software. The plug-in is encapsulated in an installation file recognizable by the extensible software as indicating that the software modules within the installation file should be installed within their own local scope on the extensible software. The approach further provides a method for handling a request for an application programming interface by a service module of an installed plug-in. The method of handling the request includes determining whether the requested API is within a local scope of the service module, and if so, providing the API from the local scope, or otherwise, providing the API from the global scope of the extensible software.

  • Publication number: 20210011742
    Abstract: In an architecture of a virtualized computing system plugins are less tightly integrated with a core user interface of a management server. Rather than being installed and executed at the management server as local plugins, the plugins are served as remote plugins from a plugin server, and may be accessed by a web client through a reverse proxy at the management server. Plugin operations may be executed at the plugin server and/or invoked from a user device where the web client resides. Furthermore, a plugin sandbox and other isolation configurations are provided at the user device, so as to further control access capability and interaction of the plugins.
