To provide a datasource, we need to implement a Java plugin.

An exemple is provided in the designer module.

Class Java:

public class ExempleListValuePlugin extends AbstractBaseListValuePlugin {

    public String[] getHandleSourceTypes() {
        return new String[] {"exempleSourceType" };

    public ListValuePage suggest(String sourceType, String query, Integer pageNum, Map<String, Serializable> props) {


Config Spring:

<bean id="exempleListValuePlugin" parent="baseListValuePlugin"  init-method="init" 

Url of datasource

<control template="/fr/becpg/components/form/controls/autocomplete.ftl">
   <control-param name="ds">becpg/autocomplete/exempleSourceType</control-param>
