Can I store/save Cmaps as CXL (XML) as default?

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 here).

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.
