Import 3rd party libraries

Import 3rd party libraries


How do we import and use 3rd party libraries. For example jar files in java. More ideally we have maven pom files. 


Hi Shawn,

I think you can do it by creating an extension in Integration Studio. I've found this documentation article talking about how to create extensions that can be useful to you :)


I've found that just importing external libraries usually doesn't lead to a good experience. You end up having to do a ton of "ToObject" calls back and forth, because you are trying to send data back and forth to it, plus you need to understand how to use the library. Instead, I like to write an extension that encapsulates the libraries and summarizes their functionality into an easy-to-use, OutSystems-like experience, where the inputs/outputs make sense to someone who only is using OutSystems.
