Interacting with other plugins

When developing a plugin I know its possible to define other plugins which my plugin depends on. How ever its there a way to trigger those plugin actions from my plugin code.

For examples

I want to call maven effective pom action and then analyze all submodules for multiple dependency delaration in submodules with different version.

How this can be acheived.

assuming that this other plugin's action is triggered by YourActionImpl registered in your plugin,

why not try this:

YourActionImpl extends AnAction{

public abstract void actionPerformed(AnActionEvent e){

ActionManager inst = ActionManager.getInstance();
AnAction other = inst.getAction(String actionId);  // another plugin's action

InputEvent ie = e.getInputEvent

inst.tryToExecute(other, ie, ie.getComponent(), null, true);



I did not try this but it may work.
