Hello everyone, I want to build an App, that allows the User to create so called “methods” (that combine into strategies). A method is a collection of search criteria the user wants to look for in the database. If any results are found, the corresponding objects should throw an alert which is then handled separately. A method is at first created and stored. Later on in the workflow the user can at first simulate the search and then execute it (only execution throws alerts). I want the user to be able to dynamically construct these methods by selecting his source entities, the attributes to search on plus a threshold (e.g. if value exceeds a limit). The search has to be executed across all entities. My issue is that I can’t think of a way on how to store the search/method to be able to display it in an overview and edit it at a later point of time plus on how to execute said method later on. I think there should be a way to make this possible. I’m more than happy to get forwarded to the right thread if the question has already been answered. Thanks in advance! Jan
not 100% sure about what you want to achieve, but lets give it a try.
I would start with the modeling reflection module, so that I do have all entities, attributes & reference available in runtime
Add an search entity, with associated 1-* SearchKey entity. 1 SearchKey refs 1 Search.
Search Key refers to entity which storeses the entities, attributes & associations in the Model Reflection module
When crafting a search method you can add multiple search keys for specific entities/attributes.
