Custom Task Developer Guide

Postby Support_Jon » Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:50 am

GoAnywhere Director includes over 60 built-in tasks to satisfy most of the business processes needed by organizations for moving, securing and translating data. However, in some cases your company may need a custom task to provide additional functionality that is not provided in the base package. For example, a custom task could be built to integrate with an internal application (like an ERP system) through a proprietary interface.

The Custom Task Development Guide provides Java programmers with the knowledge they need in order to build, package and install custom tasks in GoAnywhere Director.

Hi All ,

I have Build a Custom Code in java and was able to successfully install in GAD , after following all the process as per the Custom Task Guide .

But I am facing an issue with BeanInfo XML

The Fields I am using to pass variables into my program isnt accepting Dynamic Variables.
Its only accepting hardcoded variables . And I feel its because the Field type localOrNetworkFile .

Please suggest Alternate Field names which can be used instead of " localOrNetworkFile" so that the text box can accept Dynamic variables .
