Import a set of dictionary items as a JAR file

This feature is available on request. Contact SAP Signavio Customer Support for more details.

With the JAR import feature you can import Java classes as dictionary items and use them as data models in the SAP Signavio Decision Manager.

The attributes and relationships of the classes are created as decision input/output data types.

Preparation and requirements

Before importing a JAR file, make sure the target dictionary category supports data modeling.

The classes in your JAR file need to fulfill the following requirements:

  • Classes need the @XmlType annotation.
  • Attributes need to be of one of the following data types:
    • String
    • Boolean (and boolean )
    • Number (all subclasses) and int , double , byte , long , float
    • Nested classes (from the same JAR)
    • Collections of the above mentioned data types (no generic collections, for example Set<? extends Number>)

  1. Open the dictionary and click Import / Export > Import JAR.

    The Import JAR dialog opens.

  2. Click Choose File and select a JAR file.
