This technical note describes a plug-in architecture for Palm Operating System devices developed by the authors, a team of graduate students from Carnegie Mellon's Master of Software Engineering program. The note highlights the architecture's three most important aspects: the product (a plug-in architecture) created from a software architecture point of view; the implementation details that made this a unique project; and the software engineering facets of the project. This note also shares lessons learned and suggests possible avenues that could be pursued in the future to make plug-in architecture for mobile devices (PAMD) more universal.
