This zimlet includes a JAR file and calls custom Java classes from a JSP.

Definition File

<zimlet name="com_zimbra_example_javajar" version="1.0" description="An example zimlet with a JAR file.">
    <zimletPanelItem label="Java w/JAR Example" icon="zimbraIcon">
      <toolTipText>Click to launch the JAR Example</toolTipText>

Handler Object

The following code snippet from the Handler Object calls the JSP page using a new window:

 * Displays the zimlet jsp page.
com_zimbra_example_javajar_HandlerObject.prototype._displayDialog = 
function() {
    var jspUrl = this.getResource("jspfile.jsp");
    window.open(jspUrl, "toolbar=yes, location=yes, status=yes, menubar=yes, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes");	

JSP File

The JSP file imports the custom Java classes (from the package com.zimbra.zimlet.example). The MyClass.getString() method is called and the returned string is printed to the JSP output.

<%@ page language="java" import="com.zimbra.zimlet.example.*" %>

String s = MyClass.getString();


Hello World! <b><%=s%></b>


Zimlet Package com_zimbra_example_javajar.zip
Eclipse Project (Java source and building the JAR file) javajarexample-eclipse-project.zip
