Custom framework extension: Reference to base framework?

Post by Frank Ralf » Thu Feb 13, 2020 6:53 pm

Hi,

I like the idea of creating a custom framework extension for sharing instead of copying a whole framework. What I don't understand yet is how the connection to the base framework is kept. I suppose it's settings like the following in the .framework file:

Code: Select all

<field name="extendedPersistentObjectKey">
	<String>DITA Map</String>
</field>
The reference seems to be the name of the base framework. But what if the name of the base framework changes? In such a case, could I just update all references in my extension's .framework file? Or must I create a new extension?

Best regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

You should manually make those changes to the .framework file if the name of the extended framework is modified.
