GSXML (0.4.7)

Released on 2009-01-12 by Stefan Eletzhofer, Ramon Bartl for Plone 3.0 under GPL - GNU General Public License available for All platforms.
Software development stage: stable
A product which uses GenericSetup to Import and Export ATCT based Content as pure XML data. GSXML makes heavy use of Five to avoid starting from scratch with another Import/Export Product. Instead of that, it uses benefits of already existing, well tested Products, like Marshall and GenericSetup. The new approach with the Component Architecture that comes with Zope 3 makes it possible to extend the existing functionality and melt it together to one product.


After installation, you'll get two new items in Plone's **action** menu, one for *import*, and one for *export*. For additional stuff, please see the detailled documentation below.


  • Exports virtually all Archetypes-based documents
  • exports and keeps references
  • exports binary data as separate file
  • works with ZOPE blobs
  • sends custom events which you can subscribe to prior and after import/export
  • uses the ZCA to fetch a serializer for a content type -- the default adapter uses the Plone Marshaller
