Fixes #103: Create example extensions

  • Property svn:mime-type set to text/x-trac-wiki
File size: 2.0 KB


  1. BASE 2.7.0 or later.


This package contains a few simple variants of Hello world applications in the form of extensions to the BASE web client. The package installs several examples into the Extensions -> Hello world examples menu:

  • Hello world! - A basic example using only javascript
  • Hello factory world! - An example that uses a custom action factory
  • Greetings Root! - An example of a custom action factory with parameters
  • Hello JSP world! - Uses a JSP file to display the message instead of javascript
  • Hello X-JSP world! - Another variant of a JSP file
  • Hello Servlet world! - Uses a servlet to generate the message


  1. Unpack the tar.gz file to a directory of your choice.
  2. Copy the extension-examples.jar to your BASE extensions directory: WEB-INF/extensions.
  3. Run the 'Extensions -> Manual scan' command if you have disabled automatic installation. Otherwise, just wait a bit and the automatic installation will find and install the new extensions.
  4. If you are logged in, you may have to logout and then login again to see the new menu items.
  5. The 'Hello X-JSP world' example requires that the X-JSP compiler is installed on the server. Read in the documentation how to do this.
  6. Done. The examples can be found in the Extensions -> Hello world examples menu.


To compile this package you also need:

  1. Ant 1.6
  2. Java 1.6

Follow these instructions:

  1. Type ant download-lib to automatically download the BASE core JAR file that are neeed for compilation. You can also do this manually by copying the BASE2Core.jar and BASE2Webclient.jar files from the BASE installation directory (<basedir>/www/WEB-INF/lib/) to the ./lib/compile directory.

  1. Type 'ant' to compile the code and generate the 'extension-examples.jar' file in the project directory.
  1. Use 'ant package' to create a downloadable tar.gz package.
