About this task
To build the pattern plug-ins:

- Enter values in the Plug-in ID and Version fields for your plug-in according to the naming and version numbering conventions within your organization.
- Optional: Select Create translation plug-ins, if required.
- Click Create Pattern Plug-ins.
The plug-ins for your user-defined pattern are created and displayed under the Pattern Authoring folder in the Application Development view. The plug-ins are named PluginID, and PluginID.doc, where PluginID is the value entered in the Plug-in ID field in the Create Pattern tab. If Create translation plug-ins is selected, two additional plug-ins are created, named PluginID.nl1 and PluginID.nl1.doc.
