In the Spotlight: Broadway's Actor Editor

Broadway offers a number of built-in Actors which address a wide range of predefined activities that can be added to Broadway flows. For example, reading a file and writing into a file, creating a table and populating it, parsing an object or concatenating a string, publishing the messages to a queue or invoking a Web service.

When your implementation requires business logic that is not supported by a built-in Actor and it is repeated across several flows, you can create an Actor using an Actor Editor by one of the following:

  • Inheritance from the existing product Actors, or
  • Building an Actor based on your Java class.

The Actor Editor allows you to:

  • Create an Actor, and define its inputs and outputs.
  • Set the inputs and outputs as final or hidden, if needed.
  • Set the default values of the inputs and outputs, if needed.
  • Run the Actor in order to debug it.
