Extension and Dispatcher Classes

The Extension and Dispatcher classes were introduced to the area of extension developers in Joomla 4, who now need to understand what they are.

You may find it useful to look at this video on the Component Extension class and part of this video on Component Dispatcher and MVC Factory classes.
