oXygen Add-ons Support
oXygen provides a framework and plugin deployment support that allows frameworks
and plugins to be automatically discovered and installed from a remote location.
Two Types of Add-ons are Supported:
- Framework - a collection of files (CSS stylesheets, XML schemas,
transformation scenarios, specific actions, and more) that provide custom functionality
for a specific type of document. Note that frameworks that you install through the
add-ons system are read-only.
- Plugin - a software component that adds extended functionality using a
series of extension points provided by oXygen.
The following link provides a collection of plugins deployed as add-ons, including the
Add-ons Packager plugin. This plugin provides a quick solution for packing
your frameworks or plugins as add-ons: http://www.oxygenxml.com/InstData/Addons/optional/updateSite.xml.
