Reusable Functions for Rule Scripts

  • 1.  Reusable Functions for Rule Scripts

    Is there a way to define reusable functions that can be invoked by multiple rule objects?

    I find myself repeatedly copying and pasting common code into pretty much all my rule scripts see below example.

    It would be nice to have a shared facility to define these common functions and then be able to include or refer to them as needed.


    For example:

     * Log an info message
     * @param methodCtx - the "method" where the exception was caught
     * @param infoMsg -the info message
    function logInfo(methodCtx, infoMsg){
     logError("", methodCtx, infoMsg);

     * Log an exception
     * @param thrown - the exception
     * @param methodCtx -the "method" where the exception was caught
     * @param errMsg - error message
    function logError(thrown, methodCtx, errMsg){
     try {
      VegasClient.createLogEntry(RULE_DESCR, methodCtx, errMsg, thrown.toString(), securityContext.getLogonId());
        } catch (ignoredEx) {}

    You can create utility functions in a Java plugin added as static methods in a JAR file placed in ALC_HOME/lib/plugins.  There is no way at this time to do it in JavaScript but something to consider for a future release.  Thanks!
