    Adding custom classes to script tasks

    doctorwho Newbie

      Hello,

       

      I have a workflow that uses script tasks to execute a custom class. I am using Guvnor to deploy to the console for execution. However, if the code for the task is defined as:

       

      com.jpl.asp.scripts.ScriptExec.setPass(com.jpl.asp.scripts.ScriptExec.execute("perl","nic.pl"));

       

      Guvnor complains that it cannot find the variable com...

      so I tried moving the class into the defaultPacakage, out of com.jpl.scripts, which resulted in Guvnor not able to find the variable ScriptExecute. Next I tried to add kcontext on the front:

       

      kcontext.com.jpl.asp.scripts.ScriptExec.setPass(kcontext.com.jpl.asp.scripts.ScriptExec.execute("perl","nic.pl"));

       

      which will get it past Guvnor, but then upon execution there are errors. The original runs just fine under ecplise.

       

      How is this done? I need to use custom classes with script tasks, and it would be nice to use packages that I define.

          Nevermind, I have solved it.

           

          It would seem that the best way to accomplish what I wanted was to create a custom work definition, with a custom handler that provided the services that I needed. It was simple enough to pass the required variables, and get a return value.

           

          I wish there was more documentation for correctly getting a return value, however the examples helped.
