#1329 closed enhancement (fixed)

A plug-in should be able to use a JSP page from an extension for parameter input

Description

A plug-in may currently use a custom JSP page for parameter input. The limitation is that this JSP page is located in a subdirectory based on the classname of the plug-in. Eg. /plugins/net/sf/basedb/plugins/foo.jsp.

This is not a very useful location for plug-ins that are also extensions since there is no installation mechanism that automatically install files there. I think we should allow RequestInformation.getJspPage() to point to a JSP anywhere if, for example, the returned path starts with '/'.

Note! This feature is needed by the GenePattern integration plug-in/extension. See http://baseplugins.thep.lu.se/wiki/net.sf.basedb.genepattern
