"[SOLVED] Register a new plotter class defined in an extension"
now that I have (more or less...) a working version of my new operator, it turns out that when trying to pack the whole new stuff to an actual RM extension, there is an additional problem. Specifically, I have also written a new plotter class, which is an extension of ScatterPlotter2. This plotter, as every plotter, has to be registered in RM. So far, at least in RM 5.3 which I am using, this is done in PlotterConfigurationModel.java, with a line like
[tt]217: DATA_SET_PLOTTER_SELECTION.put(STRING_COORDINATE_PLOT, StringCoordinateScatterPlotter.class);[/tt]
However, this is of course part of the main RM code, which an extension cannot alter. So, how can I obtain the same result with a "stand-alone" extension which does not touch the original RM code?
