Creating New XClass Property Types

Version 2.1 by Marius Dumitru Florea on 2012/11/26


This tutorial guides you through the creation of a new XClass property type, which is a way to extend the class editor.

This tutorial applies to XWiki version 4.3M2 and above. Don't try on older versions.

You should start by reading the XWiki Data Model to understand XWiki Classes, Objects and Properties, and then the Writing XWiki components tutorial because new property types are implemented as components.
