This topic describes the inputs for the Action List builder.
Table 1. Action List builder inputs
|Name||Enter a name for this builder call. The WebSphere® Portlet Factory Designer displays this name in the builder call list.|
|Argument||Specify the Name and Data Type of any arguments you want to pass with the action. |
|Return Type||Use this input if you want to Web-Service-Enable an action list.|
Note: You can only Web-Service Enable actions that return simple types.
The simple return types you can choose are:
ObjectIf a return type is not specified, a java.lang.Object is returned.
|Actions||Use the Action Chooser to select one or more actions to execute as part of this Action List. The IBM® WebSphere Portlet Factory servlet executes the actions at run time, in the order that they appear in the Actions input. |
If you choose an action that takes an argument, the Define Method Call with Arguments dialog opens, prompting you to specify a value for each argument the method takes.
If you choose to alter or enter the argument values by hand, be sure to use a \ (back slash) to escape any " (quote), \ (back slash), or ! (exclamation mark) characters. For example, if you enter a file path as an argument value, you would use text similar to the following: C:\\\\home\\\\tools.
|Rename Existing||This input is useful in cases where you want to change the behavior of code that was placed in the WebApp by a high-level builder or by an imported model. |
For example, you might want to do this if you have a Domino View & Form builder in your model, and you want to use a different class for one of the LJO's that Builder adds to the WebApp. The Domino View and Form builder does not provide an LJO Class Name input. But, you can place a new LJO builder in the model and give it the same name as that assigned by the Domino View and Form builder, thus replacing the existing LJO and specifying new class.
When checked, this input will cause the builder to replace an existing WebApp object with a new object. The builder will locate the existing WebApp object (variable, LJO), rename it, and then create a replacement object.Note: This input is available on the following low-level builders that create WebApp objects: Action List, Imported Page, Linked Java Object, Linked Model, Method, Method Call, Page, Variable, and Schema.
