Yes. The experts at QAT Global have been successfully using Custom Functions within several customers for over two years. QAT Global offers two products (QAT Publisher
and QAT Exchange
) that were developed using Custom Functions which are running in customer applications today. There are also several custom functions that were specifically developed at the request of clients that are enhancing the functionality of their applications.
The main window has two distinct areas:
- The available custom functions are displayed in the left pane. Libraries containing custom functions can be purchased from third parties and imported, or you may define your own functions and libraries using the tool.
- The right pane displays the functions that are registered in the currently open CA Gen model. This pane can also be used to display the description for any selected function.
Registering a function to a model is simple and easy: Just select the desired function, click Register and you’re on your way.
- Once a function has been registered, simply exit from QAT Function Manager and open your Action Diagram.
- The newly registered function(s) will be available for use within your own statements just as you would with native Gen functions such as concat and substr.
- Use QAT Function Manager to generate the source stubs for your native language C, Java, .NET or COBOL where you can complete the code and compile into runtime libraries.
- At implementation, the associated function libraries are deployed to the environment for runtime execution. Deploy the function one time and use it like any other function from that point forward.
