AEK usage of CLEK services
Using CLEK services in AEK projects
The usage of the CLEK in the customer-created AEK projects is very similar to non-CLEK end-points (as described here: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/campusM/Product_Documentation/04_Appendices/C_Working_with_the_Application_Extension_Kit_(AEK)), but involves minor modifications in order to work with REST services rather than SOAP (Web) services.
- Define the endpoint for your Rest service in the App Manager.
It will be slightly different than the standard ones as they will not contain the standard campusM suffix ‘services/CampusMUniversityService’
2. Invoke these end-points in the AEK as GET or POST.
- Make sure to add “aek.respond(service.json)” in order to process the resposne as json and not as XML.
- For POST services, you can also set the request body as you can see in the code above. You can also set the headers as necessary.
