Open ESB Tip : NetBeans Plugin For Template Based BPEL Documentation

As mentioned in my previous blog entry (Template Based BPEL Document Generation) I have integrated the functionality into NetBeans as a simple plug-in that provides an additional Right-Click option on BPEL Files. The actual NetBeans Plug-in download can be found on the NetBeans Plug-in Portal at "BPEL template based Document Generator" and consists of four separate module and library NBMs. The associated icons and document template that are required can be found on my previous blog entry.

Installing Plug-in


Before this plug-in can be executed you will need to install OpenOffice (or StarOffice) and download the Example Icons and template OpenOffice Document from the (Template Based BPEL Document Generation) blog.

The Module Suite c should be downloaded from the NetBeans Plug-in Portal (zip format) and then extracted. This will provided you with the four NBM files.
  • com-tox-doc-nbm.nbm - Documentation Plug-in
  • com-tox-doc-gen.nbm - Command-line documentation jar wrapped as a library
  • com-tox-doc-nbm-oo.nbm - Minimum OpenOffice Jars wrapped as a library
  • com-tox-doc-nbm-batik.nbm - Minimum Batik Jar wrapped as a library

Running Plug-in



Configuration

The plug-in comes with it's own Configuration tab that provides access to all the configuration information that you would have specified in the config.properties files for the command-line version. Before executing the Document Generator for the first time you will need to specify, as a minimum, the OpenOffice Program folder, the template file, the output directory and the Icon Directory. If these are not specified the plug-in will not run and will simply display an error dialog.

Config

Context Menu

For each file with the bpel extension the plug-in provides an additional context-menu entry (Generate Documentation) which will run the Document Generator for the selected bpel.

Menu

In addition if you are in the Source view you will also see the same context-menu option when you right-click on the source.

When the menu item is selected it will execute in exactly the same way as the command-line implementation described in the Template Based BPEL Document Generation blog entry.
