Programmatically Managing Endpoints

About Endpoint Registry Service

The Endpoint Registry service provides the ability to programmatically manage endpoints. You can, for example, add the following types of endpoints to a service:

  • EJB

  • SOAP

  • Watched Folder

  • Email

  • Remoting

  • Task Manager

    Note: SOAP, EJB, and Remoting endpoints are automatically created for each activated service. The SOAP and EJB endpoints enable SOAP and EJB for all service operations.

    A Remoting endpoint enables Flex clients to invoke operations on the LiveCycle service that the endpoint is added to. A Flex destination with the same name as the endpoint is created and Flex clients can create RemoteObjects that point to this destination to invoke operations on the relevant service.

    The Email, Task Manager, and Watched Folder endpoints expose only a specific operation of the service. Adding these endpoints requires a second configuration step to select a method to invoke, set configuration parameters, and specify input and output parameter mappings.

    You can organize TaskManager endpoints into groups called categories. These categories are then exposed to Workspace through TaskManager, with end users seeing the TaskManager endpoints as they are categorized. Within Workspace, end users see these categories in the navigation pane. The endpoints within each category are displayed as process cards on the Start Processes page in Workspace.

    You can accomplish these tasks using the Endpoint Registry service:

  • Add EJB endpoints. (See Adding EJB Endpoints.)

  • Add SOAP endpoints. (See Adding SOAP Endpoints.)

  • Add Watched Folder endpoints (See Adding Watched Folder Endpoints.)

  • Add Email endpoints. (See Adding Email Endpoints.)

  • Add Remoting endpoints. (See Adding Remoting Endpoints.)

  • Add TaskManager endpoints (See Adding TaskManager Endpoints.)

  • Modify endpoints (See Modifying Endpoints.)

  • Remove endpoints (See Removing Endpoints.)

  • Retrieve endpoint connector information (See Retrieving Endpoint Connector Information.)
