Plugin Integration Pattern


The Plug-in Integration Pattern is supported through the open metadata frameworks:

Each framework supports specific types of components that can be provided by third parties as well as Apache Atlas developers.

Figure 1 shows a plug-in component loaded into a server. The frameworks ensure the plug-in’s are called at the appropriate points in the server’s operation.
