This two-day course introduces attendees to the Jython scripting language and explores how it can be used to customize your FDMEE workflow by writing import, mapping, event and custom scripts.
Gain an understanding of basic Jython syntax and how various commands can be accessed. This includes the use of variables, comments, string methods, formatting operators, functions, conditional branches, lists, loops and other scripting features. After familiarizing yourself with these features, explore how they can be used in relation to FDMEE details.
Discover how import scripts can be used to tailor the details that are imported to FDMEE during the Import process. See how mapping scripts can be used to customise the mappings that are applied. Discover how event scripts can alter the standard workflow by triggering additional processes and how Custom scripts can be used to enable functionality that needs to be run on an ad hoc basis.
You will gain experience of displaying custom messages, writing messages to the FDMEE process log, executing SQL queries, handling errors and working with text files. Getting started with Jython scripting for FDMEE has never been so easy.
Develop Jython scripts effectively from the ground up. Create and test scripts in an external editor before transferring to FDMEE. Understand the various script types and they ways in which these can extend your default processes. Understand the available objects in FDMEE that can be referenced by scripts.
