Not every functionality that has been developed by people around the world will be included in the core. This is because a function may be only of interest for a few people. Therefore the OpenJUMP team focuses on a Extension-Strategy. That is, functionality is added to OpenJUMP by the use of OpenJUMPs plug-in system (note: an Extension can hold several PlugIns, i.e. several Functions). This plugin system works very simple for end users. One downloads the plugin (or extension) and then (often after unpacking the file) drops the *.jar file into your OpenJUMP lib/ext/ folder. After re-starting OpenJUMP the functions should be available.

- two print plugins
- a set of functions for quality checks
