Examples of resourceDescriptor

The following resourceDescriptor sample contains a set of simple properties that describe a JDBC connection resource:

<resourceDescriptor name="JServerJdbcDS" wsType="jdbc"
                    uriString="/datasources/JServerJdbcDS" isNew="false">
  <label>JServer Jdbc data source</label>
  <description>JServer Jdbc data source</description>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_PARENT_FOLDER">
    <value>/datasources</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_VERSION">
    <value>0</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_DATASOURCE_DRIVER_CLASS">
    <value>com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_DATASOURCE_CONNECTION_URL">
    <value>jdbc:mysql://localhost/test?autoReconnect=true</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_DATASOURCE_USERNAME">
    <value>username</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_DATASOURCE_PASSWORD">
    <value>password</value>
  </resourceProperty>
</resourceDescriptor>

Some properties cannot be represented by a simple value. To accommodate more complicated properties, a resourceProperty can recursively contain other resourceProperties. This is the case for a List of Values type resource (used to define input controls for report parameters); the list values are contained in the resourceProperty named PROP_LOV and are represented by sub-resourceProperties. For example:

<resourceDescriptor name="SampleLOV" wsType="lov" uriString="/datatypes/SampleLOV" isNew="false">
  <label>Sample List of Values</label>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_RESOURCE_TYPE">
    <value>com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.common.domain.ListOfValues
    </value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_PARENT_FOLDER">
    <value>/datatypes</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_VERSION">
    <value>-1</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_HAS_DATA">
    <value>false</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_IS_REFERENCE">
    <value>false</value>
  </resourceProperty>
  <resourceProperty name="PROP_LOV">
    <resourceProperty name="US">
      <value>United States</value>
    </resourceProperty>
    <resourceProperty name="CA">
      <value>Canada</value>
    </resourceProperty>      <resourceProperty name="IN">
      <value>India</value>
    </resourceProperty>
    <resourceProperty name="IT">
      <value>Italy</value>
    </resourceProperty>
    <resourceProperty name="DE">
      <value>Germany</value>
    </resourceProperty>
    <resourceProperty name="RO">
      <value>Romania</value>
    </resourceProperty>
  </resourceProperty>
</resourceDescriptor>

This example defined a list of countries. Notice that, for each list item, the resourceProperty name represents the item value, and the resourceProperty value contains the item label.
