  1. Datasource: Using custom datasource or Joget default datasource
  2. Custom JDBC Driver: The JDBC driver for custom datasource
  3. Custom JDBC URL: The JDBC connection URL for custom datasource
  4. Custom JDBC Username: The username for custom datasource
  5. Custom JDBC Password: The password for custom datasource
  6. SQL Query: The query to populate options. 
  7. Use Ajax: A checkbox to decide whether or not it is using AJAX to load options. (For AJAX Cascading Drop-Down List)

The query should also support a syntax to inject dependency values when using AJAX.

...

To make it work as a Form Options Binder, we will need to implement org.joget.apps.form.model.FormLoadOptionsBinder interface. We would like to support AJAX Cascading Drop-Down List as well, so we need to implement org.joget.apps.form.model.FormAjaxOptionsBinder interface also.

c. Manage the dependency libraries of your plugin

Our plugin is using javaxusing dbcp, javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest and javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse class, so we will need to add jsp-api and commons-dbcp library to our POM file.

Code Block
languagexml
<!-- Change plugin specific dependencies here -->
<dependency>
    <groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
    <artifactId>jsp-api</artifactId>
    <version>2.0</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
    <groupId>commons-dbcp</groupId>
    <artifactId>commons-dbcp</artifactId>
    <version>1.3</version>
</dependency>
<!-- End change plugin specific dependencies here -->

...

Then, let us upload the plugin jar to Manage Plugins. After uploading the jar file, double check that the plugin is uploaded and activated correctly.

Then, let us create an AJAX Cascading Drop-Down List in a form to test it. Let's create our test form as follows.

...

You can download the source code from jdbc_options_binder_src.zip.

To download the ready-to-use plugin jar, please find it in http://marketplace.joget.org/.
