demo_component_service.htm
demo_component.hda

Modify the resource.htm as below. Give the Service name, handler name and search order.
The handler name is the fully qualified name of the java file where the service method (printTheName()) is created.

Place the compiled java class file in the classes folder inside the custom component.
cs/custom/demo_component/classes/de/xyz/ucm/service
