Hand coded adapters

Link adapters can be implemented in Java or C/C++. The connector wizard can be used to create the adapter descriptor that is required to expose the properties and operation of the adapter to Link.

To create the adapter descriptor, follow these steps:
  1. From the connector wizard, create a new connector and select the type as A hand-coded adapter.
  2. Define the connection and action properties of the adapter.
  3. Define the operations of the adapter.
  4. Click export to export the descriptor of the adapter.

At any time, the connector can be edited to modify the property or operation definitions.

Before the adapter can be deployed and used in Link, the adapter code must be added to the deployment compressed file.
