Failure to load provider/plugin not reported, anywhere

Created: 30/Jun/14 04:56 PM   Updated: 25/May/16 06:26 AM
Component/s: Engine
Affects Version/s: 3.0 Alpha 2
Fix Version/s: 3.0 Beta 1

QA Status: Cannot be tested


 Description  « Hide
If a plugin cannot be loaded, there is no information about it anywhere. Even if the plugin is a mission-critical security-related one. IMHO, there must be a way to configure a plugin as a "must work one" and the engine must raise error if such plugin failed to load.

I like an idea of adding configuration info to distinguish required and not-required plugins. But may be better mark plugins that may be not loaded? Currently I know only one in default configuration - engine12 in client case. When adding non-default entries mentioning in them not-required plugins will be possible but hardly needed.

Added parameter Required to plugins configuration. Sample - section in plugins.conf

Plugin = Engine12 {
   Required = Yes
}

will make plguin manager raise an error when module for this plugin is missing.

When module is bad (empty, invalid format, etc.) error is reported always no matter of Required value.

What is default value for this parameter?

false

"true" would be better. With "false" users will have a hard time looking for a mistype in pligin's name.
