There is not a use case, but from the UI Plugin design description, looks like it is aimed
at extending the CS UI after it is in production. I was thinking that there might be a requirement
for having some Server side code running in CS to support this UI Plugin.

The current CS Plugins are built in and if you wanted to add supporting UI I think you would
develop that native rather than using a UI Plugin architecture.

Soheil,

Yes there is.   Look under the plugins folder for all the current plugins.

CloudStack plugins allow not only code to be inserted to add functionality but APIs can be
added to facilitate new functionalities.

I do ask everyone who are developing plugins to consider and discuss end user facing API changes
on the list before making them.  Admin API changes can be added fairly quickly.
