How to implement listeners?

Hello,

 

I want to know how we can implement listeners in Windchill. 

 

I have never worked on listeners, so please guide me to a proper article to implement it from the scratch. 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Hari R

Re: How to implement listeners?

Hello,

 

Its a pretty broad topic, so you may want to elaborate on specific requirement on which you are working. I would be happy to share my work and walk you through the customization which I did.

 

Feel feel to drop an email to karthik@teamspringg.com / ketan@teamspringg.com with details and we can take it from there.

 

Thanks,
Karthik

Re: How to implement listeners?

I have a few in production (rename listener, version modifier, DB sync). They are great but be careful about multiobject events. Example, we had issues with the rename listener (propagates name changes to related objects) when there were many objects in the set. I split the listener and action to a queue job which decouples the two.  Listener just looks for valid cases, creates a queue job and allows the transaction it interrupted to proceed without error.
