SDL WorldServer allows customers to expand WorldServer capabilities through pluggable components. There are several exit points in WorldServer through which custom code can be invoked to perform customer-specific operations.Here are the types of pluggable components currently supported:
Developers use the SDL WorldServer Software Development Kit (SDK) to write these pluggable components. The implementation begins by extending an abstract class corresponding to the type of component you want to create. For example, the com.idiominc.wssdk.component.servlet.WSHttpServlet abstract class needs to be extended in order to implement a customized servlet.The abstract classes provide us with a handle to the WSContext object, which provides us with access to the service managers.
I've implemented a very simple servlet for demonstration purposes. I'm using Maven in my project, so I first installed the wssdk-server jar file in my local repository using the following.mvn install:install-file -Dfile=wssdk-server.jar -DgroupId=com.idiominc -DartifactId=wssdk-server -Dversion=220.127.116.1109 -Dpackaging=jarThere are only two dependencies in the pom.xml file.
The ProjectInfo servlet outputs project information from all projects available in the system (active and inactive). It demonstrates the use of the user and workflow managers for gathering information.
