3. Configuring the Environment

The extension environment is build around a set of ant build scripts that are highly configurable through properties files and build scripts. You should create customized versions of the properties files by creating a version with the same name than the original one but inserting your user name before the extension. The two most important files that should be customized are:

3.1. Advanced customization of the environment

If the customization options provided by the properties files is not enough you can extend the environment by writing your own build scripts. To make this possible all default targets are written in files called build-parent.xml that are inherited from the file that ant will actually look for (build.xml). You can modify all script files named build.xml and add your own targets or override the default ones. When the extension environment is upgraded your modified files will be preserved.
