I wrote a custom network plug-in for a default transformation project. I also use a HATS Only Administration project to manage the HATS applications. When running the default transformation project it works perfectly; however, the HATS Only Administration project cannot view the connections. I can view the messages log, just not the connections.
I created a test default transformation application to test if the problem was in the HATS Only Administration project, but it saw the connections just fine. Therefore, I decided to build that test application one step at a time to see if I could pinpoint when it broke. I followed the instructions from the Web Application Programmers Guide on Incorporating Java code from other applications, http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/hatshelp/v85/topic/com.ibm.hats.doc/doc/pgblogic.htm?path=5_1_0#incjcode
- Added a custom business logic class like the WEL application, but when deployed, everything worked perfectly.
- I imported the custom network plug-in into the EAR file, then deployed and tested. Everything worked perfectly.
- I next updated the MANIFEST file to enable the custom network plug-in, then deployed and tested. Everything worked perfectly.
- Next I update the Build Path as documented in step 2, then deployed and tested. This is where things broke.
I tried reversing the step 4 above, but the I still cannot view the connections.
Is step 4 really necessary? Removing the build path information does not resolve the problem once it occurs.
