Creating an imported type for a Java™ class

In the Source view, you create an imported type using a <type> element. There is a containing element called <import> that contains all the imported types in the macro script, and there is a <type> element for each imported type. Figure 1 shows an <import> element that declares an imported type, followed by a <vars> element that creates and initializes a variable belonging to the imported type:
Figure 1. Imported type and variable of that type
   <type class="java.util.Hashtable" name="Hashtable" />

   <create name=$ht$ type="Hashtable" value="$new Hashtable(40)$" />
In the figure above the <import> element contains one <type> element, which has a class attribute (containing the fully qualified class name, java.util.Hashtable) and a name attribute (containing the short name, Hashtable). The <vars> element contains one <create> element, which as usual specifies a name ($ht$), a type (Hashtable), and an initial value (which here is not null but rather is a call to a constructor that returns an instance of the class, $new Hashtable(40)$).

If you are using the source view, you must put all imported types (<type> elements) inside the <import> element. The <import> element itself must appear inside the <HAScript> element (see <HAScript> element) and before the <vars> element.
