In this section we will explain which are the steps for creating and using
a new translational layer. So, let's start.
The first step is to create a StorageServer extending the class org.itr_rescue.dataGuard.StorageServer.AbstractStorageServer.
The methods connect, disconnect, fetch, store, delete must be
override in such a way to interact with the server.
Add the layer in DataGuard
Now, you have to crate a JLinkLabel; The JLinkLabels are the components which are visible when you start
DataGuard on the right panel. There is one JLinkLabel for each translational layer. The JLinkLabel provide
an hyperlink to the service, a service description and a service icon if available.
So, you have to:
Create your JLinkLabel extending org.itr_rescue.dataGuard.ui.JLinkLabel
Override the method mouseClicked defining what to do when the object is clicked
Facultative - Override methods that define the service description and the service icon
Add the service name and the your JLinkLabel's name into resources/properties/services.props
Creating a new Remote View
The current prototype of DataGuard contains only one Remote View. With this view DataGuard represents
the hierarchical structure of a file system. So, the view contains file and folder organized in a tree
If you want a different object's representation, feel free to define other remote view. For instance, you can
create a remote view of images based of thumbnails as well as a remote view with a calendar interface.
The Remote View is only the virtual representation of your objects at the server, hence, there are no
limit in the number of different view we can build.
