Latest Java plugin development guide

Jump to solution

Hello!

Is there any updated version of the development guide that works with vRO 7.X? The docs seems outdated and the archetypes doesnt work out of the box (at least for me). I guess that DynamicTypes won't solve my problems anymore so I'm thinking about go Java.

Guides, articles or advices also welcome.

The command may fail for several reasons. Check, for example, the thread https://communities.vmware.com/thread/624622  where I provided some info how to resolve them, or what to check for additional troubleshooting.

SolarSystem plug-in dates back to good old vCO 4.x days. It might be hard to compile it with the current tooling. There are several open source plug-ins on Github which you can look at, although they are not documented and are not intended to be used as a reference implementation. Here are some of them:

https://github.com/dimitrovvlado/o11n-plugin-redis

https://github.com/dimitrovvlado/o11n-plugin-cache

https://github.com/vmware/o11n-plugin-crypto

Hi,

Which version of vRO do you have installed? Could you provide more information about the errors/issues with the archetypes?

Also, could you provide a link to the development guide you are using?

It fails on the mvn generate:archetpye command, it says it's not supported anymore (I can post the full logs later when I get back to home).

I'm using the same docs AlessandroRomeo68 attached and still lost. The documentation doesn't have a starting guide (altho I'm not an experienced Java developer since I mainly code in C#/JS I stil think it's missing some information such as how to setup the Environment and maybe some examples).

Is there any working example plugin for the 7.X version? I found the SolarSystem plugin but still didnt made it work.

Thanks!

Those examples works on vRo 7.X without major changes to compile? If so thats an excellent start point and will def. take a look

Thanks illiev!

Not sure about the Powershell plug-in, but I'd expect the other 3 plug-ins to be fully compatible with vRO 7.

Let me know if you have problems compiling them.
