Hi Tony,

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.
