Defining custom dataslots

To define custom dataslots:
1. Open the process template for a Web application in OpenEdge BPM Designer and click the Dataslots content pane tab. To create a dataslot, click New to open the New Dataslot dialog box.
2. Define a new CHARACTER dataslot type to hold the className for the custom dataslot — in this case assign it the name of MyClass—and select CHARACTER from the Type drop-down list. In the Initial Value box, type className as the custom object to be created to correlate the Factory information with the dataslot.
3. Similarly, define a new OBJECT dataslot type and assign it the name, MyTable.
