A Java Step, or Steplet, is defined for a Java Virtual Machine system connection and contains the Java logic to be processed by SAP Mobile Platform Server for a Java interface. The logic for a Java Steplet is contained in a Java source file with a .java extension. This file is added to an existing Java project in the Eclipse Java perspective. This class created is an extension of the Agentry Java API class Steplet. The contents of this file are processed by the Java Virtual Machine running on the host system for SAP Mobile Platform Server.
With the release of the Agentry Mobile Platform version 5.1, the process for creating a Java step definition changed. The new procedure reflects support for the Java perspective provided within the Eclipse and allows the developer to add Java logic for a step definition to existing projects within the Java perspective. The creation of the Java logic portion of a step definition is now performed through the Java perspective’s wizard for creating classes, and allows for the selection of the package to which the step is to be added. Java steps created in previous versions of the mobile platform are still supported and will still reside on the Server’s file system. New Java steps defined for the application should be created using the Java wizards provided by the Java Perspective. The file for these steps will then be saved to the file system according to the configuration of the Java project to which the Steplet is added.
