Dependencies Are Important Type of API

In my yesterday's post I promised to write a note once a week. However, things in real life are never like envisioned in planning phase. Today I stopped in my work and faced a little bit of confusions about NetBeans module dependencies. Some guys wanted the NetBeans Platform to start to depend on Batik. Indeed this is not really desirable. If we want the NetBeans Platform to be easily embeddable in other applications, it is not wise to grow our external dependencies over reasonable limit.

As a result I've started the APITypes page and added a section about dependencies there.
