Optional ProM Input

Hi,

I would like to know if there's an option to allow optional input for the ProM plugin. Lets say I have a plugin that requires 4 inputs (A,B,C, and D), I wanted to make the first two mandatory, whereas the last two optional. I'd like to be able to choose to input either AB, ABC, ABD, or ABCD.

I wonder if ProM has any option to do so? Or do I need to create 4 plugins to cater for all the possibilities?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Cheers,
Keith

    Hi Keith,

    ProM allows for this but requires you, more or less, to create 4 plug-in variants of the same plug-in.

    For more details, see https://svn.win.tue.nl/trac/prom/wiki/setup/ComplexPlugIn/Overloading/Optional
