Hi coders, i wrote a library and i wrapped Jserver inside and wrote my server handlers also there. I tried using this library inside a cli program and to my surprise i got error. Please any suggestion?

cuppifyrouter is my server handler inside the library.

Waiting for debugger to connect...
Program started.

Thanks , the above did solve my problem but created another.
Inside my library the handler: CuppifyRouter is not able to call an external sub inside a code module using call sub. I tried adding the external package name like

punchline.myapi.MyModule.MyExternalSub this doesn't work also ..

B4X:
If SubExists("punchline.myapi.MyModule", "MyExternalSub") Then

            CallSub3("punchline.myapi.MyModule", "MyExternalSub", "My First Paremeter", "My Second Parameter")
  
        End If


Please any way about this ?

Shouldn't the first parameter of SubExists be an Object and not a String?

B4X:
Dim m As SomeClassModule
' otherCodeModule is a code module in project
…
' class module
If SubExists(m,"someMethod") then
…
' code module
if SubExists(otherCodeModule,"anotherMethod") then 
...

I am trying to call a sub dynamically :( .. thanks but this doesn't solve my problem

Why not use the same package name in your library and app?

Actually , i wrote a library for B4J i don't know what package name someone using my library might use :(
but i would try like what you suggested if it work .. i think i can use this as a temporary solution, i can tell developers to also follow that step for now . But if any solution is available please share;)

Hi, i tried using same package name. This doesn't solve my problem. I even tried putting my package name in front like this

B4X:
   CallSub3("punchline.myapi.MyModule", "MyExternalSub", "My First Paremeter", "My Second Parameter")

same failed result. I think from a server handler one cant call a sub that is external. Because i created another module in the project and tried call my sun then i used in my real app and called that sub and it worked , am i doing something wrong :( because i need to pass all parameters in the callsub3() dynamically

This is what I was hinting at with my previous post.
CallSub3 requires an object in the first parameter not a string
If you have a class module then you will have
B4X:
Dim x As theClass
then CallSub3 would be
B4X:
CallSub3(x,??,??,??)
If it's a code module then
B4X:
CallSub3(theCodeModuleName,??,??,??)
