Event framework Java PX code example debug,deploy and pop up warning message

Hi All,
I have written event framework java px and I am new in it. I have used “change status  from workflow” event and write following code.Now i have to test it before converted into jar file, So is it possible to test it locally? 
public EventActionResult doAction(IAgileSession session, INode actionNode,
IEventInfo request) {
//IObjectEventInfo objectEventInfo = (IObjectEventInfo) request;
IWFChangeStatusEventInfo objectEventInfo = (IWFChangeStatusEventInfo) request;
IDataObject affectedObject = null;
String changeNo,ActionString = null;
try {
affectedObject = objectEventInfo.getDataObject();
} catch (APIException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block

//def changeno1 = ChangeConstants.ATT_COVER_PAGE_ORIGINATOR;// ChangeConstants.ATT_COVER_PAGE_NUMBER;
try {
changeNo = affectedObject.getName();
IAdmin admin=session.getAdminInstance();
String ChangeNo = affectedObject.getValue(ChangeConstants.ATT_COVER_PAGE_NUMBER).toString();
IChange ChangeObj = (IChange)session.getObject(3 ,ChangeNo);
ITable affectedItemsTable =ChangeObj.getTable(ChangeConstants.TABLE_AFFECTEDITEMS);
Iterator ite = affectedItemsTable.iterator();
while (ite.hasNext())
IRow row = (IRow) ite.next();
String item = row.getValue(ChangeConstants.ATT_AFFECTED_ITEMS_ITEM_NUMBER).toString();
IItem itemObj = (IItem)session.getObject(ItemConstants.CLASS_PART, item);
String ITEMLIFE = itemObj.getValue(ItemConstants.ATT_TITLE_BLOCK_LIFECYCLE_PHASE).toString();
String ItemPartType = itemObj.getValue(ItemConstants.ATT_TITLE_BLOCK_PART_TYPE).toString();
String createUser = “Priyanka Mehta”;
// obj.logMonitor(“item = “+ item +” || ITEMLIFE “+ITEMLIFE+”|| ItemPartType “+ItemPartType);
ITable tab = itemObj.getTable(ItemConstants.TABLE_RELATIONSHIPS);
// obj.logMonitor( ” || item “+item+” || “+ITEMLIFE);
ActionString = ActionString +” “+item+” “;
for (Iterator iterator = tab.iterator(); iterator.hasNext();)
IRow manuRow = (IRow) iterator.next();

String RitemName = manuRow.getValue(ItemConstants.ATT_RELATIONSHIPS_NAME).toString();
String val2 = manuRow.getValue(ItemConstants.ATT_RELATIONSHIPS_CURRENT_STATUS).toString();
// obj.logMonitor( ” || RitemName “+RitemName+” || “+val2);
ActionString = ActionString +” rtm “+RitemName+” “;
if(ITEMLIFE.equals(“Production”) && (!val2.equals(“Production”) ))
ActionString = ActionString +” rtm lc “+ITEMLIFE+” “;
// obj.logMonitor( ” production condtion mismatch”);
String sendToList = affectedObject.getValue(ChangeConstants.ATT_COVER_PAGE_ORIGINATOR).toString();
// affectedObject.sendNotification(“TNMDummyNotifiction”, false, sendToList, “Comments: send from Script handler”);
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, “TNM is not in Production LC state”, “Warning”, JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
// throw new AgileDSLException(“Item is in production lifecycle and TNM part is not in”);
// obj.logMonitor( ” not enter”);
ActionString = ActionString +” rtm lc not production “+ITEMLIFE+” “;
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, “TNM is not in Production LC state”, “Warning”, JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
ActionString = ActionString +” not tnm “;


catch (Exception e) {
// throw new AgileDSLException(e);

ActionResult actionResult = new ActionResult(ActionResult.STRING,
return new EventActionResult(request, actionResult);


Now i have following doubts:-
1. I am unable to found how to pass value of IEventInfo.
 I have create void main fx and in it try to used this object like 

try {
factory = AgileSessionFactory.getInstance(“http://secureagiletest.udp.sml.com/Agile/”);

IAgileSession session = factory.createSession(param1);
IDataObject obj1 = (IDataObject)session.getObject(ChangeConstants.CLASS_CHANGE_ORDERS_CLASS , “DCO42921”);
//sm.tnmaction.EventControllerController controller = new sm.tnmaction.EventController();
EventController controller = new EventController();
EventActionResult result = controller.doAction(session, null, (IEventInfo) obj1);

but unable to cast obj1 into Ieventinfo type…

2. I want to show a warning message infront of user so i have written on some condition
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, “TNM is not in Production LC state”, “Warning”, JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
It will work or not?

3.how and where to add jar files so that my class name will appears on LOV in java client event management–>event handlers–>event action

Hi Priyanka,

You can take basically take most of what you have and test it as a Groovy PX just fine – just the main method and return method will be different on a groovy PX.  I’ve done that to test chunks of script at a time and basically anything written in Java will convert over to Groovy just fine.  You can try exporting as a jar and testing in your test environment as well.  I’ve never got a JOptionPane to work in Groovy script though I’ve never tried on a java PX (can anyone else confirm?).  

Your script looks ok to me.  I noticed that you’re getting the IChange/Dataobject twice in your script.  Replace line 5 (IDataObject affectedObject = null;) to (IChange affectedObject = null) and you won’t need lines 17 and 18.  Your line <String ITEMLIFE = itemObj.getValue(…> might want to be switched to the row.getValue(ChangeConstants.ATT_AFFECTED_ITEMS_LIFECYCLE_PHASE) just to be on the safe side.  Also try IItem itemObj = row.getReferent() as an easy way to get the IItem dataobject on a Change Order affected items table.  

I can’t really say why you’re not able to get the IEventInfo object info but that’s because I’m way more familiar with how Groovy scripts handle this.  I am confident that your casting issue is because you need to change it to an IChange object instead (IChange obj1 = (IChange) session….).

move all your logic code into a separate java class. The class containing doAction() should do minimum possible. 
For example, the logic class would execute something given the “IDataObjet” and other parameters

To test from your desktop:
write a “launcher” class that connects to A9 and and instantiates the logic class with the necessary parameters.

If this is too difficult, use the jar file as is, but add a lot of print statements in your code. If you are capturing stdout to a file when you launch A9, then you can “see” the print statements.

A better approach is to create your own logger ( i.e insert new “logger” into existing log4j framework for Agile PLM ), but that may take some time to make it work in the PX environment.
