AWE Workflow Application Class Criteria

I had a little trouble creating my first App Class criteria so I thought I would share some tips on how to write an App Class for use as AWE criteria. Here are the primary secrets:

  • Your App Class must extend EOAW_CRITERIA:DEFINITION:CriteriaBase (PTAF_CRITERIA:DEFINITION:CriteriaBase for 9.0 apps).
  • Your constructor must take a Record definition as a parameter.
  • Your constructor must set %Super by passing the criteria's ID. The following example uses the criteria ID value specified in the parameter record.
  • Your App Class must implement the Check(&bindRec_ As Record) Returns boolean method.

Here is a sample template:


class MyCriteria extends EOAW_CRITERIA:DEFINITION:CriteriaBase
   method MyCriteria(&REC_ As Record);
   method Check(&bindRec_ As Record) Returns boolean;

method MyCriteria
   /+ &REC_ as Record +/
   %Super = create EOAW_CRITERIA:DEFINITION:CriteriaBase(&REC_.EOAWCRTA_ID.Value);

method Check
   /+ &bindRec_ as Record +/
   /+ Returns Boolean +/
   /+ Extends/implements EOAW_CRITERIA:DEFINITION:CriteriaBase.Check +/
   REM ** TODO evaluate something here;
   Return True;
