Plug-in steps: The step-type element

You define plug-in steps with the step-type element; each step-type element represents a single step in the IBM® UrbanCode® Deploy process editor.

A step-type element has a name attribute and up to four child elements:
  • description
  • properties
  • command
  • post-processing

The mandatory name attribute identifies the step. The description and name are shown in the web application and on informational pages for the plug-in. The contents of the description determine which icon is displayed with the step.

<step-type name="Start">
<description>Start Apache HTTP server</description>
Note: A step name cannot contain the forward slash (/) character.
