Content Navigator auto-reload of plugins

IBM Content Navigator (ICN) loads configured plug-ins when it starts. If a plug-in is not available at ICN start time or fails to load initially, it just remains in a failed state and users are presented with error messages. This will happen, for instance, when the plug-in JAR is web hosted, but the hosting app starts after ICN. This is a common problem in AT&T's clustered environments.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Navigator users and administrators
How should it work?

ICN should auto reload plug-ins. This would make it much more resilient and self-correcting. It already detects the plug-in load issue and displays a related error to ICN users when they log in or try to access a desktop. If it did that same integrity check and attempted reload on some interval, many plug-in load errors would fix themselves and not require administrator intervention.

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification This would correct an important deficiency with the product, but workarounds are available.
