NetIQ Custom Collector SDK

The release notes mention a Custom Collector SDK, and has a line that says:
For more information, see

But stops there. Is there any more information, or a place to grab the SDK?

Greetings,
The SDK tools are available from the same place where you accessed
the ID Gov 3.0 zips.

Any luck on additional docs for the SDK?   I've got a client with a number of apps they would LOVE to collect from, but the out-of-box collectors aren't the ideal way.   Some docs to help figure out the collector framework would be very helpful.

Mostly the SDK does two things as I understand it:

1) Gives you a Java skeleton, with a spot where "collect code goes here" for you to add in.

2) Builds a JSON descriptor, specifying your class, so you can load the result into IDG.

 

Basically you need to have some Java code you can use to collect the data, format it into a JSON object (format would be nice to be clearer on) and then return thaat in the class.

You can look at examples of the current collectors, since they are all present in your install as Java and pick up tips and tricks from there, until there is some better documentation.
