This manual contains reference material describing the Escenic publication resources. The publication resources are text files containing important system configuration information that determines the structure and other characteristics of an Escenic publication. Publication resources are by convention stored in the following location in a publication JAR file:


There are four publication resources:


An XML file that defines the types of content items allowed in a publication.


An XML file that defines the image versions available for use in a publication.


An XML that defines the article, section and element templates available to the editors/writers of a publication and the logical structure of the sections in a publication.


A plain text file containing property settings that define miscellaneous aspects of the Content Engine's behavior.

In order for changes to a publication resource to take effect, the- resource file must be uploaded to the Content Engine using the web administration interface. For a description of how to do this, see Creating/Updating Publication Resources.

In addition to the resources listed above, this manual also contains a description of the XML elements in the interface-hints namespace. These elements can optionally be inserted at various points in the XML resource files in order to:

  • Provide a richer, more user-friendly interface in Content Studio.

  • Add extra (mostly presentation-related) information that can be accessed and used by your publication's template code.
