Embedded Dirigible

Sample class showing how to embed Dirigible into an arbitrary Java application.

Steps

  1. Create a Java project
  2. Create a folder "content"
  3. Create sub-folder "project1" under the "content" folder
  4. Create a file named "hello1.js" under the "project1" folder with the following content
console.log('Hello World!');
  1. Create a Java class named "MyApp" with the following content:
import java.io.IOException;

import org.eclipse.dirigible.commons.api.context.ContextException;
import org.eclipse.dirigible.commons.api.scripting.ScriptingException;
import org.eclipse.dirigible.runtime.core.embed.EmbeddedDirigible;

public class MyApp {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // create a Dirigible instance
        EmbeddedDirigible dirigible = new EmbeddedDirigible();
        try {
            // initialize the Dirigible instance
            dirigible.initialize();
            // import the content under the specified folder to the Dirigible's registry
            dirigible.load("./content");
            // execute a given service module
            dirigible.executeJavaScript("project1/hello1.js");
            // or more generic dirigible.execute(dirigible.ENGINE_TYPE_JAVASCRIPT, "project1/hello1.js");
            // or richer dirigible.execute(dirigible.ENGINE_TYPE_JAVASCRIPT, "project1/hello1.js", context, request, response);
        } catch (IOException | ScriptingException | ContextException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        } finally {
            // destroy the Dirigible instance
            dirigible.destroy();
            System.exit(0);
        }
    }

}
  1. Run it as a Java application
  2. You have to be able to find the following log record in the system output

[main] INFO org.eclipse.dirigible.api.v3.core.Console - Hello World!
