Custom operation


I am using Paraview Lite to learn about this technology.

What is the best way to add custom commands for unsupported files? Let me explain it better. Imagine I have a file from which I know how to generate an obj or stl. I would like to build a c++ library for the back-end to generate this stl from this unsupported file.

Can I integrate these new RPC calls in current Lite protocol using the same port and wslink connection? Or should I create a new wslink server, port and connection being isolated from the one Lite is using?

What is a good example to create a new wslink connection from scratch?
