This sections provides information on setting the landmark configurations in the Composite Application Editor (CAE).
To define landmark configurations in the Composite Application Editor, right-click on any container component in the page navigator and select Edit Component Properties
. The dialog for editing component preferences displays.
For container components, there is a dedicated tab for editing the container’s landmark configuration called Landmarks
Containers may provide a list of available landmark types, for example Local Name, Title, URL and URI for the web application container. Either choose one of these from the Type of Landmark
drop-down menu or enter the desired landmark type manually. Next press the Add Landmark
button to create an actual landmark of the chosen landmark type. There might be a list of landmark expressions suggested by the container to select from. Alternatively, a landmark expression can be entered manually (for example, a regular expression). Landmark events can be created using the Add Event
button. Note that any available event can only be used once for a given landmark. You can then add operations to events (again, using a dedicated button). For any desired operation, a wired property must be available. This is in the Advanced
properties tab of the component preferences dialog. In terms of operations, the container defines the available actions (usually "receive" and "publish") and it might provide a set of suggested fields to select from.
Sometimes it is necessary to change the order in which operations should be executed. To achieve this, there are arrow-like icons which allow for rearranging the execution order of an event’s operations.
Finally, it is possible to export and import landmark definitions. These are stored in XML files. At the bottom of this dialog, there are buttons to invoke an export or import task.
