Using a Library in OIC by Harish Vinayachandran



A library is a file or a collection of multiple files bundled in a JAR that contain Javascript functions. Library is used within an integration and is executed by a Javascript engine on the server as part of an integration flow.

This document describes the following:

1. Requirements that a Javascript function needs to meet to be used within integration.

2. How to create Javascript file or collection of Javascript files that are suitable to be used in creating a Library. 

1. Javascript function requirements

Following are the requirements based on which Javascript function should be written so that it can be registered and works correctly in OIC.

1.1 Function return values should be named

Consider this example

function add ( param1, param2 ) {
  return param1 + param2;

Even though the above example is a perfectly valid Javascript function it can’t be registered as a library in OIC because without a named return value the library metadata editor is unable to identify parameters returned by this function so that it could be used in mapper for mapping downstream activities in an integration.

OIC requires you to change the above function and name the return parameter like this example. Read the complete article here.
