Appian RPA provides several modules, which include methods that make it much easier to develop the actions to perform by robotic processes.
This section expands upon each of the modules available in Appian RPA.
The full list of the modules is as follows:
jidoka-client-api): this module is available for every robot. The interface
IRobotitself is part of it.

jidoka-sap-api): it gives access to the available objects in SAP using SAP GUI Scripting.
jidoka-client-api): it's used to consume items in a queue from multiple robots running in parallel.
Appian RPA allows extending modules functionality by creating your own Maven projects. The projects will end as JAR files in the repository, also known as Maven dependencies. To create a new dependency for your robot, you have to:
Another way to extend modules functionalities is by creating registered libraries. Learn more about libraries.
The pages in this section will take you through each module, including some exercises. For each example, we have access to its source as a reference. They are ready to be imported directly into the Eclipse IDE.
