4.0 Creating and Packaging Extensions for Deployment

Much of the information in this section references Teaming, which is the product name for the Vibe product for versions prior to Vibe 4. This information applies to Vibe 4 as well as earlier versions of the product.

Extensions in OpenText Vibe enable you to bundle definition and template XML, custom workflow calls that implement the workflow action and condition interfaces, custom JSP files, and other Web-visible resources that are needed by the application browser interfaces.

Extensions can help you customize your OpenText Vibe site, adding increased functionality that can help you solve specific business problems.

This section describes how to create an extension and then package it for deployment. For information on how to deploy an extension after it has been created and packaged, see Adding Software Extensions to Your Vibe Site in the OpenText Vibe 4.0.8 Administration Guide.
