Oxygen XML Editor allows you to change the location where frameworks (document types) are stored, and to specify additional framework directories. The Locations preferences page allows you to specify the main frameworks folder location. You can choose between the Default directory ([OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks) or a Custom specified directory. You can also change the current frameworks folder location value using the com.oxygenxml.editor.frameworks.url system property set in either the .vmoptions configuration files or in the startup scripts.

A list of additional frameworks directories can also be specified. The application will look in each of those folders for additional document type configurations to load. Use the Add, Edit and Delete buttons to manage the list of folders.

A document type configuration (framework) can be loaded from the following locations:
  • Internal preferences - The document type configuration is stored in the application Internal preferences.
  • Additional framework directories - The document type configuration is loaded from one of the specified Additional frameworks directories list.
  • Add-ons - An add-on can contribute a framework. You can manage the add-ons locations in the Add-ons preferences page.
  • The frameworks folder - The main folder containing framework configurations.

All loaded document type configurations are first sorted by priority, then by document type name and then by load location (in the exact order specified above). When an XML document is opened, the application chooses the first document type configuration from the sorted list that matches the specific document.

All loaded document type configurations are first sorted by priority, then by document type.
