Has anyone deployed a custom step using java for WMX? The deployment instructions in the sample are lacking in version 10, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Tim,

The basic steps to create a Java custom step are:

1) Create a java class that implements IJTXCustomStepSafe
2) Compile the class and package it into a JAR file. The sample Ant buildfile that comes with the samples should help with this. The key thing to note here is that the JAR manifest must contain a class-path entry that includes the relative path from the <ArcGIS Install>\java\lib\ext directory to the Workflow Manager JAR file (located in <WMX install>\java).
3) Copy the resulting JAR to <ArcGIS Install>\java\lib\ext
4) Open ArcGIS Workflow Manager Administrator

You should now be able to create a new step type that uses your custom java step object.

Please let me know if you would like some more information about any of these steps, or if you are running into an issue when trying to run these.
