      • baseType

        public abstract java.lang.String baseType


        Required parameter: the base type for the result. When defining the base type for the result, it is important that the matching Java type is used for the method's result.

        BaseTypes
      • name

        public abstract java.lang.String name


        Optional parameter: the name of the result as it should be referenced by other services when invoked via the REST API or via the processServiceRequest methods. If the base type of the service is InfoTable, then the name is effectively ignored. Otherwise, the result of the service is an InfoTable with one column whose key is equal to the name parameter.

        Note that omitting the name parameter for any result base type aside from NOTHING or INFOTABLE will prevent the results from being accessible to JavaScript services and is considered invalid.

        Default:
        ""
