Why not use a good plugin architecture? That's what we're doing for
the next version of our application. We're using SmartPlugin from
Athrasoft( ). There's also the
one from TMS ( ). There's the one from Dragon
Soft ( ). And, there's also one
in the JVCL.

We chose SmartPlugin because of it IDE wizard, simple to use(once you
get the concept) and has the ability to send messages between a plugin
and the host, vice versa, or even plugin to plugin. It also has it's
own exception handler. And, the plugins can unload themselves, just be
entering one line of code in the plugin. And, the community is
helpful(you'll also find in the samples section, a sample that uses
IBO). You'll have to register(no purchase necessary) in the community
to see the samples. I find the product quite mature and the author
quite responsive to questions.
