The Automation Anywhere Enterprise A2019 plug-in architecture makes it easy for developers to create and upload new packages of well-defined actions into their Control Room, and then use those actions within their bots.
Automation Anywhere pre-installs a set of popular packages, which are available to both Enterprise A2019 and Community Edition users. With the Package SDK, new and custom packages can be created by Automation Anywhere, developers within your own organization, and third-party providers.
The Automation Anywhere Package Development Kit (Package SDK) for Java Developers enables you to:
As a developer using the Package SDK, you create each package as a standalone application, with its own UI layer and a logic layer. This modular design approach enables authorized users to deploy and upgrade your Control Room’s packages independently, without interrupting other processes.
Thus, by following Automation Anywhere’s best practices for package development and deployment, you enable IT managers to roll out new bot capabilities to all users via one Control Room, without requiring other product or platform updates; and you reduce the QA time and cost usually associated with company-wide software upgrades. This reduces the typical maintenance overhead and total cost of ownership associated with managing and upgrading bots across hundreds of client installations.
The Package SDK includes sample code, documentation, and supporting files.
