Guide Section: Processing Object Data | EASAP Tree: DATA PROCESSING → SCALAR
CUSTOM SCALAR executes custom written Java code placed on the EASA Server to generate and return a SCALAR. The specific code that is accessed is determined by the selection of the code’s fully qualified class name as the value of the Class: parameter. For details on writing custom code for EASA, Create Custom Code using the EASA API.
|Class:||Fully qualified class name of the custom code|
|Type:||Type of value (Real, Integer, Text, default→determined automatically)|
|Cache Type:||Select when object value is cached (default→Automatic, None)|
As with all custom objects, new parameters can appear for the CUSTOM SCALAR once its Class: parameter has been selected. If coded properly, you can find out more about these new parameters by clicking on the parameter name and reviewing the Parameter Information displayed below the Parameter table.
