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 enable an action list for a web service.|
Note: You can only Enable actions that return simple types for a web service.
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. |
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.
