    If you want to support your plugin by checking for others plugin, put the following in your plugin.yml.

    softdepend: [Plugin, AnotherPlugin]
    Let's say you want to hook into Spout, but it's not required.
    softdepend: [Spout]
    and you also want mcMMO...
    softdepend: [Spout, mcMMO]
    Simple as that. I had to write this because there was many questions asking how to check to see if other plugins that are hooked into their plugin is enabled.


    If you want your code to work, please put..
    2. JavaPlugin toCheck = Bukkit.getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin(mcMMO);
    3. if(toCheck != null) {
    4. log.info("Detected mcMMO!");
    5. }
    7. Replace mcMMO with a plugin. If you want to check for two plugin, just copy the code again and change the variables. Thanks to @[URL='http://forums.bukkit.org/members/pandemoneus.94801/']Pandemoneus[/URL] for showing me this.
    10. If you want your plugin to have the following plugin, do
    11. [code]
    12. depend: [mcMMO]
    13. [/code]

    Might want to include something about
    depend: [Plugin, Plugin2]
  3. You actually didn't even check yet.
    At the moment your plugin loads after the other ones, but you are not checking in any way whether the other plugins are actually installed on the server.

    I'll try to learn it from the Javadocs.
  5. Code:java
    1. JavaPlugin toCheck = Bukkit.getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin(nameOfPlugin);
    2. if (toCheck != null) {
    3. System.out.println(nameOfPlugin + " found.");
    4. }

    As @iffa said, it's probably best that you include info about 'depend:' as well.

    Let's say you want your plugin to have support for Spout, but not require it:
    softdepend: Spout

    But it absolutely needs mcMMO to run:
    depend: mcMMO

    softdepend if your plugin doesn't rely on it.
    depend if it shouldn't even start up if the other plugin isn't found.

    The point of writing a tutorial is to share information you have already mastered and know well. Please stop writing tutorials for people with things that you don't even understand fully yourself, and need to be corrected or helped with. I appreciate your willingness to write tutorials, but... yah...

    also what should be noted is that softdepend and depend doesn't seem to work always.. I found it best to use the softdepend / depend and afterwards use a server listener and some logic to look the the plugin becomes available and is initialized correctly... don't know if it is the best code though how I do it... but it works 100% up to now..
