Collection Installation File

The Collection Installation file is an XML file that contains a description of features, settings, components and content to be imported. One configuration files is required for an Add-on Collection to install. A Collection Installation file is not needed to create a collection on your site, but if after creating it, you want to copy it to another site, an installation file is needed. There is an Add-on, Add-on Collection Export, which creates this file for you from your site's settings.

The top node for an addon collection is the 'Collection'.

<Collection name="" guid="" system="" updatable="">

<Data />
<ImportCollection />
<Addon />
<NavigatorEntry />
<SQLIndex />
<Styles />
<ScriptingModule Name="" guid="" />
<Resource Name="" Type="www|content|executable" Path="" />

Name is used to identify the collection in displayed lists. If the GUID is not present, name is used to locate a collection for upgrades.

guid is string used to uniquely identify the collection. To create a new guid, use the Create GUID tool from Advanced Tool menu in the navigator any Contensive site
