    I use WorldEdit's API and WorldGuard's API for custom protections.
    Here is an example on what I do to create protected regions in some of my plugins:

    Code:
    public static void addProtectedRegion(Player player, World world, int x, int y, int z, int radius, int delay, Map flags)
    {
        // get the region manager
        RegionManager rm = worldGuard.getRegionManager(world);
     
        // make a cuboid with two points to create a 3d cube in the world
        BlockVector b1 = new BlockVector(x + radius + 1, y + radius + 1, z + radius + 1);
        BlockVector b2 = new BlockVector(x - radius - 1, y - radius - 1, z - radius - 1);
     
        // create the protected region
        ProtectedCuboidRegion pr = new ProtectedCuboidRegion(/* fill in a name here */, b1, b2);
        DefaultDomain dd = new DefaultDomain();
     
        // add the player to the region
        dd.addPlayer(player.getName());
     
        // set the player as the owner
        pr.setOwners(dd);
     
        // set the flags
        if (flags == null)
        {
            flags = new HashMap();
            flags.put(DefaultFlag.BUILD, State.DENY);
            flags.put(DefaultFlag.CREEPER_EXPLOSIONS, State.DENY);
            //
            //    put more flag definitions here
            //
        }
     
        pr.setFlags(flags);
        try
        {
            rm.save();
        }
        catch (Exception exp)
        { }
    }
    
    And to get the "worldGuard" object, I use this method in my plugin:
    Code:
    public static WorldGuardPlugin getWorldGuard(JavaPlugin plugin)
    {
        Plugin wPlugin = plugin.getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("WorldGuard");
     
        if ((wPlugin == null) || (!(wPlugin instanceof WorldGuardPlugin)))
        {
            return null;
        }
     
        return (WorldGuardPlugin) wPlugin;
    }
    
    Also, make sure you use imports similar to these:
    Code:
    com.sk89q.worldedit.*
    com.sk89q.worldguard.bukkit.*
    com.sk89q.worldguard.protection.*
    etc...
    
    The code I posted is just an example, and somewhat specific to my uses. I hope this gets you started using thes APIs. :)

    instead of plugin.getServer(), ytou can do Bukkit.getServer(), saves you an argument

    Why would you need to get the plugin onEnable(), couldn't you just add it as an external jar?

    If I recall correctly, WorldEdit/Guard needs to be loaded as a plugin in order to make use of the API.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong - it has been a while since I used WorldEdit/Guard.

    Code:
     RegionManager rm = WorldGuardPlugin.getRegionManager(world);
    That line shows errors! It says "The method getRegionManager(World) in the type WorldGuardPlugin is not applicable for the arguments (World)"

    It means that you must use variable "world" with type "World".
    Example:
    Code:
    World world = player.getWorld();
