I'd like to create a plugin to manage postgis Layers : create layers, export 
and import layers.
First of all, what is the difference between client side and server side. the 
aim of the client side code, is it to create dynamic content for the 
interface and the server side to realise request, calculation, ... ?

So about my plugin, I will use a template to display the form (to create a new 
layer), the client side will be empty (may be not) and the server side will 
do the request into the postgis DB ?

If I extend the edit plugin with my own class. Can I use all config parameter 
of this class (like parameter for the connection to db) ?

Last (but not least), how does cw3 to use plugin ? I know that the name of the 
plugin and the files have to be the same (well almost), but I don't know 
exactly the plugin is run ... Can you help me ?

Thank you !
