|ID||The ID attribute is a pervasive attribute that uniquely identifies an element within a definition file. The ID needs to be a unique value within the definition.|
|JavaPluginVersion||The JavaPluginVersion attribute determines which version of LogiPluginObjects to use in the plugin call. LogiPluginObjects is the developer API for the Info Server Java plugin system. Omitting this attribute will cause the original LogiPluginObjects to be used.
Specifying "Version10" in this attribute will result in LogiPluginObjects10 being used as the developer API. LogiPluginObjects10 has all the properties and methods of LogiPluginObjects, and also has additional methods such as addDebugMessage(), replaceTokens() and getSettingsDefinition().
Leaving JavaPluginVersion blank maintains backward compatibility with older versions of Info.
LogiPluginObject10 is located in the package com.logixml.plugins. The original LogiPluginObjects was in the root package.
This is also a value "DotNet" which designates a plugin written in .NET and cross-compiled for Java with Mainsoft Grasshopper.
This attribute has no effect on .NET Info applications, which have all the methods of both versions.
|PassDataAs||PassDataAs specifies how DataLayer XML data is passed into and out of a Plugin.
"XmlDocument" will pass the data as an in-memory XML document object (Default). The data is added to the "CurrentData" property of the ServerObjects.
"FileName" will pass the XML data with a file. There may be an input data file found in the ServerObjects.CurrentDataFile property and there will be an output filename in ServerObjects.ReturnedDataFile. These names include the fully qualified path.
The default value is "XmlDocument".
"XmlDocument" stores the data set in memory. Use "FileName" to reduce the amount of memory used when working with large data sets. With "FileName" the plugin can work with the data using Xml stream readers and writers.
|PluginMethod||(Required) The name of the Plugin's method to be called.|
|PluginName||(Required) The filename of the plugin assembly, typically ending in ".dll" for .NET or a .class file in a .jar for Java. In .NET the assembly file should normally be located in the _Plugins folder, under the application root. In Java a standalone .class file goes in WEB-INF\classes under the application root. A .jar file containing. class files goes in WEB-INF\lib under the application root.
You may also specify a complete absolute path to the assembly dll in .Net. This should not be done in Java.
However, the full name of the Java class including package is necessary(i.e. com.logixml.plugins.SamplePlugin10).
|PluginTypeName||(Required) The TypeName specifies the plugin's class that contains the method that will be called. The value consists of the dll's root namespace, ".", and the class name. For example: "LogiXML.SamplePlugin.Plugin".
This attributes is required for .NET plugins, and is ignored for Java plugins.|
