Service JSR94 rules - Completing the Create, Save As, or Specialization form

Records can be created in various ways. You can add a new record to your application or copy an existing one. You can specialize existing rules by creating a copy in a specific ruleset, against a different class or (in some cases) with a set of circumstance definitions. You can copy data instances but they do not support specialization because they are not versioned.

Based on your use case, you use the Create, Save As, or Specialization form to create the record. The number of fields and available options varies by record type. Start by familiarizing yourself with the generic layout of these forms and their common fields using the following Developer Help topics:

This information identifies the key parts and options that apply to the record type that you are creating.

Note: Create a Service Package data instance before creating a Service JSR94 rule; the name of the service package becomes the first key part of a group of related Service JSR94 rules. The class and method name key parts are considered "external" and unrelated to the Pega Platform class and methods, for flexibility.

Create a Service JSR94 rule by selecting Service JSR94 from the Integration-Services category.

A Service JSR94 rule has three key parts:

Field Description
Customer Package Name Select a service package name (instance of the Data-Admin-ServicePackage class); this service package groups related Service JSR94 rules. Choose a name already defined by a Service Package data instance. See About Service Package data instances.
Customer Class Name Enter the name of the service class. This is an arbitrary text value that is a Java identifier, not an instance of Rule-Obj-Class class. See How to enter a Java identifier.

The service package name and service class name group service rules.

Identifier Enter an identifier for the service method. See How to enter a Java identifier.

This name is an arbitrary text value; it is not an instance of Rule-Method. The service method named describes what the service rule does.
