Subject Re: Advanced UI on a Processor
Date Sat, 12 Sep 2015 21:20:29 GMT

Under META-INF in the war you should see a file that indicates which processor type that custom
UI is for. Make sure that has your processors type specified. Let me know if that helps.

working but I currently input the criteria as properties, but because of the fluidity of the
criteria this is impracticable to maintain.I thought I could use an Advanced tab such as that
used in the UpdateAttribute processor, this would allow me to input as many criteria as I
wish hold them in some sort of set and then use them within my processor algorithm without
having to rebuild the processor.   So I would be looking at changing 'rule' to criteria, dispense
with the 'conditions'  area and change the actions area columns to Start and Stop.

pane appears?
