WSPBuilder perfect companion: Content Explorer

6 06 2007

While WSPuilder will build the solution package for deployment, Content Explorer will generate features with the Content Types, as well as the referenced fields and hierarchy.

The tool site is in German, so I’ll leave you with the link to the direct download.

The features are created in folders and all you have to do is to drag them into the /12/Template/Features folder that will be used afterwards by the WSPBuilder.

This one I have tested and I am using.

Just a couple of hints:

I have found that some elements and/or properties in the fields feature are not accepted. i had to manually clean the following:

  • property -> Version=””
  • property -> Aggregation=””
  • property -> webid=””
  • Element -> <customization></customization>

All these and probably more are not supported and will prevent you solution to be added.

With these tools that are appearing, we are starting to have an interesting set of tools for deployment. Nevertheless, a consolidated deployment tool is still needed…
