In Java, I have have an Abstract Class and a single concreate class. I can
create another class that is a subclass of the abstract class. The
application can load my new subclass at runtime by reading a properties or
config file. This allows to create a simple plugin api for an application.
Can objective-c do this with the same ease? If I create the application,
could someone else sub class the abstract class, and place somefile in a
path. Then change the application config file and the application would load
the file that would contain the new class.
Thanks for all the help. I just got a new Powerbook Mac, and I want to
create a new application that will be completely component based. I know I
can use Java to create a cocoa app, just I'm wanting to try out objective-c.
