EBI External Notifications API Windows Example with 3 Arguments

EBI External Notifications API Windows Example with 3 Arguments (property values)

The below examples uses the baseline EXTOL set-up of EXTOL's SendEbiItmNotif.java program.

We customized SendEbiItmNotif.java to allow for users to enter 3 arguments (properties) to be passed to an EXTOL Event.

Shipped EXTOL Items

Create EBI Objects for Testing api.notification event

Create api.notification event

Since our updated program SendEbiItmNotif.java is passing 3 property values to the api.notification event, we will set up the event to accept the 3 properties:

EXTOL Business Integrator (EBI) 2.6 External API Event

Create api.notification BPS

After we create the api.notification event, we will set-up a BPS called: notificationAPI. Once created, we will tie the BPS to the event.

EXTOL Business Integrator (EBI) 2.6 External API Event

Updated EbiNotificationAPI.bat

Below is a customized EbiNotificationAPI.bat script. The bold items are to be replaced.

Note: For testing purpuses we unarchived the development artifacts of EBI_Notifications_2.x.zip into the the directory: C:\EBI26\APINotify\

On the line that begins with java we pass in "EXTOL" "BUSINESS" "INTEGRATOR" . These are the 3 values we expect to see in the EXTOL Business Process script, as script parameters.

 SET JAVA_HOME=C:\EBI26\jre\bin
 SET CD=C:\EBI26\APINotify\ebi_notification
 SET CLASSPATH=.;%CD%;%CD%\conf;%CD%\lib;%CD%\lib\EBI.jar;%CD%\lib\jbossall-client.jar;%CD%\lib\jboss-j2ee.jar;%CD%\lib\log4j.jar;%CD%\lib\dom4j.jar
 ECHO Running Java Class
 java SendEbiItmNotif "notification.api" "EXTOL" "BUSINESS" "INTEGRATOR" 100 "Triggered Event"
 ECHO Successfully ran Java Class

Update jndi.properties

Update the bold item if .bat does not reside on same machine as EBI Server.


Modified SendEbiItmNotif.java

Below is the modified version of SendEbiItmNotif.java. In our modified example we added the ability to pass 3 property values. These values will be passed to the event api.notification

Compile SendEbiItmNotif.java

C:\EBI26\APINotify\ebi_notification>javac -classpath .;C:\EBI26\APINotify\ebi_notification\lib\EBI.jar SendEbiItmNotif.java

Testing Modified SendEbiItmNotif.java

Once the .bat file is set-up, the java source has been compiled, and the .jndi file reviewed we can execute EbiNotificationAPI.bat

When we run the .bat file from a DOS command, we should see the following:

EBI Auditor Window

Below we see the 3 property values originally from EbiNotificationAPI.bat

As we can see, the values from the .bat file (and DOS Window) of "EXTOL" "BUSINESS" "INTEGRATOR" are present as script parameters.
