Just as you can record your interactions with the host and generate Java or C# code, you can generate VBI Script code, which can be compiled and then executed on the host. Using the VBI Script you can send and retrieve data from the host in a single trip.
You can modify the generated VBI Script outside of the designer or even create it from scratch. Whichever way the code is created, you must compile it to generate the final output that is sent to the host for execution. The code can be compiled in the designer or using a command line.
|This option||Does this...|
|Package name||The package name used for the Java test class. If you do not specify a package name, the default package is used.|
|Class name||The class name of the Java test class. If you do not specify a class name, the class name will be the same as that used for the VBI Script.|
|Inputs||To specify inputs to the script, add them to the Inputs table. Inputs are keys(variables) and values in a Java map. The variable is the name of the variable defined in the script that is initialized with the string from the Values field during execution.
Click Add Row to specify as many inputs as needed.
|Web service||Select Generate web service to expose the VBI Script as a web service.
|Persist settings||Select this option to have everything you entered in this dialog box available the next time the dialog box is opened and the contents generated. If you do not persist the settings, then all the settings will return to their defaults and you will have to re-enter the path and output location of the script.|
|Clear settings||Click Clear settings to return all the settings in the dialog box to their defaults. This may be useful when you are compiling multiple scripts.|
You can also compile a VBI Script outside of the designer, using a command line. The necessary files are located in
-?option. The help is the same as that available from the Compile External VBI Script dialog box.
