Once you have generated the Java™ source files for your Extension class, you must compile the source code to create the extension.
  • Use a Java compiler that is supported by this API to compile your Extension class files. Refer to the IBM Forms Server – API Installation and Setup Guide for more information on compatible development environments.
  • Before building your extension you should have a collection of .java files that represent your extension. After compiling the .java files you will have a set of files with the same name as the .java files but with the extension .class.
  • For example, after compiling the source code for the Extension class and the FunctionCall class your Java compiler will create two corresponding files: FCIExtension.class and FciFunctionCall.class. These two class files make up the extension called FCIExtension.
  • The details of compiling your source code are not included in this manual. Consult your Java documentation for specific information on how to use your Java compiler.
