  • 1.  Building Java based PAM connector

    Posted Apr 20, 2015 02:14 AM

    Do you want to build a Java based PAM connector

    - without writing a single line of XML

    - test it without deploying it in PAM

    - without restarting PAM after deploying connector jars

    I have an answer for you

    Hi chivi06,


    We're using the Java based PAM connector Version 1.0.0 Eclipse plugin.


    We can create an run a connector based on the sample provided by the plugin.


    We found the following shortcomings:


    • missing javadoc documentaion
    • the plugin does not run under Mars or Neon
    • the project can't be used with git because absolute pathnes are stored in the configuration
    • the reference to the connector libs Points into the plugin directory, which might be different on the Clients
    • when exporting a binary connector only absolure filnemanes of jar files are honored; relative pathnames in the same Workspace but to different projects are not supported
    • The reference to the jars of the jre shuld be made with Java Build path -> Libraries ->Add Library -> JRE System library


    Is there a newer Version than 1.0.0 available where some of the shortcomings migt be addressed?

    Hi Klaus Nuber,


    Thanks for reaching out

    The plugin currently supports Kepler and Luna versions only.

    For the other points, could you please go ahead and create support defects. Our team will look at them and point you in the right direction. In case of Enhancement request, please log an idea in the communities page so that we could take that forward.

    You could even refer to Connector documentation at below Url.

    CA Process Automation Connectors - CA Process Automation - 4.3 - CA Technologies Documentation


    As of now, there is no newer version planned for the connector SDK.

    Hi Vinay,




    Could you please provide a link to the Javadoc of the pamconnector. Without proper documentation further development of our connector is very difficult.




    Thanks in adavance




    Mit freundlichen Grüssen

    Hi Klaus Nuber,


    As of now, we do not have the javadoc available. But the above link i shared, provides you the complete information on the annotations and methods we support.
