You should note there is a little more to it than that:
While the "Static Data" never changes as it is stored on disk, it can
be temporarily changed at runtime.
For example: I have a Database Utility standalone to create, edit,
backup, restore, and reindex databases. My design calls for the
utility to be user-translatable; so preopenStack reads the labels,
toolTips, menu & menuItem names from the main library and sets
control properties and/or contents accordingly. When the standalone
quits, the updated information is lost.
