Writing a custom plugin

Ephesoft allows developers to write their own plugins and install them to Ephesoft. Developers should prepare the following files to install their custom plugins to Ephesoft:

  • A JAR file containing code that will be executed in the workflow
  • The Spring configuration to reference the code
  • An XML file containing the plugin configuration, including: plugin name, jar name, dependencies, and version information

Plugins are packaged as ZIP files containing the above files so that administrators can upload and install the plugin to Ephesoft using workflow management.

The following is a sample plugin XML structure:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <plugin> <jar-name>ephesoft-sample-plugin-0.0.1</jar-name> <plugin-name>EPHESOFT_SAMPLE_PLUGIN_TEST</plugin-name> ...
