Subject Re: CloudStack API Development

CloudStack. All I had to do was:
-Compile the client
-Add a bean for my PluggableService to applicationContext.xml
-Add my command permissions to the
-Drop my jar and dependency jars into /WEB-INF/lib/

So, to anyone curious, the plugins look more firefox-y than we though. =)

If anyone sees a potential problem with this please let me know. I'll update the list if I
come across anything else interesting in my investigation.
