To enhance the calculation functions provided with Essbase, you can create custom-defined functions for use in calculation scripts.
Custom-defined calculation functions are written in Java. Essbase does not provide tools for creating Java classes and archives; you must have a supported version of the JDK.
For examples of custom-defined functions, see Java Code Examples.
To create a custom-defined function:
- Review the requirements for custom-defined functions.
- Write a public Java class that contains at least one public, static method to be used as a custom-defined function.
- Install the Java class.
- Register the custom-defined function as a local or global function.
