Pinned topic Creating an extension point for websphere application server

‏2013-04-22T11:59:44Z |

 

I know that WAS supports the eclipse extension APIs, since we use several extension points to extend functionality of other applications. However, I cannot seem to figure out how to create my own extension point that others implement. I know that this is supported, because I found some documentationhttp://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.base.doc/info/aes/ae/tweb_regfilter_extension.html.

I have created a plugin.xml and a schema file, and these are both in a jar that is loaded in a WAS shared library. I have also created a test implementation that is a web app.

However, the problem is, when I call Platform.createInstances("my.point.id", "class", true); to get the instance of the extension point that have been added, I don't get any created instances, and I don't know why.

Have I missed a step or something?
