Combining Illustrator Extension Technologies

Adobe Illustrator provides more than one developer interface and these can be combined, depending on the requirements and complexity of the development project.

How can Extension Technologies be combined in Illustrator?

Where speed and enhanced integration needs to be achieved then the c++ interface is probably the best route as we used in the integration of Illustrator into SMART boards This interface allows threading support for example that allows multiple processes to run at the same time such as an update in the document as well as other background tasks.

The Common Extensibility Platform (CEP) is the standard way of providing a user interface and uses web based technologies such as HTML and JavaScript. Event handling can be provided you with the C++ and ExtendScript interfaces for both commands and feedback.
