cover services, .operations file, .operations dtd spec, perhaps make a service like the pastebin one or something. idk, something easy.
also mention how a service can access the dataengine via it's pointer(I think that's in public api), if it really really needs to(e.g. plasma-kdm can't live without that)
A very useful tool for anyone writing services is the Plasma engine explorer. You can use it to see test services by launching them by running
plasmaengineexplorer </code> If the service you want to test is associated to a source, you can access a dialog to launch the service and set its parameters by using the contextual menu of the source and selecting "Get associated service" [[Image:Plasma-engine-explorer-task-service.png]] ==The Code== This tutorial will cover adding a service associated with a source into an existing data engine. ===The Description of the Service and its parameters=== ====Writing an Operations File==== ===The Main Code=== ====Responding to Request for the Service Associated to a Source==== ====Writing the Code Executing the Action of the Service==== ====Building it==== ==Testing==
