KB-2081 @Type annotation not found in appian-plugin-sdk


When importing com.appiancorp.suiteapi.type.Type into a Java class file for a Suite API plugin, the compiler will indicate that the class Type could not be found.


The Type class is missing from the appian-plugin-sdk.jar file that is used to compile Suite API plugins.This issue has been reported to the Appian Product Team. The reference number for this issue is AN-90744.


Add <APPIAN_HOME>/deployment/web.war/WEB-INF/lib/appiancorp-suiteapi-annotations-0-SNAPSHOT.jar (Tomcat) or <APPIAN_HOME>/suite.ear/lib/appiancorp-suiteapi-annotations-0-SNAPSHOT.jar (JBoss) to the classpath when compiling the plugin. This requires an Appian installation on the machine that is being used to develop the plugin.
