    This document describes how to create and use Java actions in a variety of ways, and includes application examples.

    Create actions

    The process of creating Java actions is similar to creating JavaScript or Swift actions.


    To compile and test actions created, JDK 8 must be set up in the local environment.

    A Java action is a Java program with the main method. Accordingly, the method must be defined in advance in the following format.

    public static main(;

    An example of creating a Java file with this taken into account is shown as follows:

    1. Write a source code file under the name

      public class Hello {
          public static JsonObject main(JsonObject args) {
              String name = "World";
              String place = "Naver";
              if (args.has("name"))
                  name = args.getAsJsonPrimitive("name").getAsString();
              if (args.has("place"))
                  place = args.getAsJsonPrimitive("place").getAsString();
              JsonObject response = new JsonObject();
              response.addProperty("payload", "Hello, " + name + " in " + place + "!");
              return response;
    2. Use commands to compile in hello.jar, which is a JAR file.

      $ javac
      $ jar cvf hello.jar Hello.class
    3. Upload the hello.jar file created, and create an action called helloJava.

      • Main class: Set to the Hello class.

    If the class is not the default package, then you can use the class name FQCN (Java fully-qualified class name) which includes the package, such as com.example.MyMain.

    If you'd like to change the method name of the Java action and use it, then you can create an action by specifying a method name like methodName.


    When you compile a Java file, google-gson must be included in the Java CLASSPATH.
