Storing Cmaps as CXL (XML) as default

Post by cmapadmin » Tue Nov 18, 2014 5:31 pm

The CmapTools client and the CmapServer can be configured to save the Cmap as an CXL file (XML) instead of as a serialized java object. (A description of the CXL format can be found at http://cmap.ihmc.us/xml/).

In the "cmaptools.cfg" file, in the bin directory in the folder where CmapTools is installed, add the entry:

save.as.xml=true

The Cmap will be stored in a file with extension ".cmap" but the components will be xml files, with the Cmap being in CXL format. The ".cmap" file is really a zip file and can be unzipped with any utility.
