+1

The longer I think about it, I have to agree. The current design dates back a very long time
and we constantly extended and enhanced it but it gets complicated ...

So, here is the proposal:

* We create a new Web Console architecture
* With brandnew (aka incompatible) extensibility API
* A compatibility layer to still support older plugins

Along the way, we should investigate whether we can leverage OSGI RFC-182 (see [1]) instead
of our homegrown JSON.

WDYT ?

I have created a Wiki page [2] to collect ideads etc.

Regards
Felix
