You can create as many profile entries as you need and save them as a profile set.
A profile set consists of zero or more profile entries. A profile set entry represents a single aspect of a business relationship that you want to make variable.
You can map each profile entry in those profiles to a builder call by profiling that builder input.
You manage profile entries in one of the following ways:
- The Profile Entries editor can add, modify, and delete entries.
To access the Profile Entries editor, click the Entries tab of the Profile Manager.
- The Profile Input dialog can add or modify entries.
To access this dialog, click the profile button [
] located beside a builder input.
Every entry that is created has six definition fields:
- User interface (UI) Type (for example, a radio box or select box)
- Extra Data
- Default Value
- Execution Time
When you add a profile entry, the entry is actually shared by all existing and future profiles. Except for the Default Value
field, the values of the definition fields are the same for all profiles. The Default Value
field is the only field whose data can be changed on a per-profile instance. The Default Value
field is the only customizable field. To see the settings of all six fields of an entry, use the Entries
tab of the profile manager.
You customize an entry value for a given profile either in the Manage Profiles editor of the profile manager or when you profile a builder call input. In either case, you are changing the Default Value
field of that entry for that profile.
You can also create a Java class that dynamically assigns data to profile values based on some runtime condition or business logic. Profile Value Selection handlers, as these Java classes are known, allow for even more flexibility in providing variability in your Web application.
