Go Up to Developing an EMS Package

You can create a new EMS package by running the EMS Package Wizard, as follows:

  1. Open the EMS Package Wizard:
    • For Delphi: File > New > Other > Delphi projects > EMS > EMS Package
    • For C++: File > New > Other > C++Builder projects > EMS > EMS Package
  2. Select the type of package extension you are creating:
    • Empty package. An empty package does not register a resource in the EMS Server. You can choose it if you plan to add the resource later.
    • Create package with resource. Creates a package with a resource that will extend the REST API of the EMS Server.
    Note: If you are creating a new empty package, select Finish to close the wizard.
  3. Enter additional resource information:
    • Name. The name of the created resource.
    • File type. Select if you want to implement the resource:
      • Data Module: uses the designer and visual components. Select this type if you are creating a FireDAC EMS Resource.
      • Unit: uses code.
  4. Select the Endpoints methods that you want to add to your resource.
  5. Click the Finish button.

After finishing the wizard, you need to implement the resource endpoint methods as you want. See Tutorial: Implementing Your First EMS Resource or Tutorial: Implementing a FireDAC EMS Resource for more details.
You can also add new EMS resources to your existing EMS Package. See Adding an EMS Module to an EMS Package for more information.
