You can create resources to customize a Client Services installation package. The Platform Editor is centered around building a configuration that can create artifacts to customize and streamline the product installation.
The editor uses a .xpdplatform
file to store data about the configuration. The editor can also open and migrate .product
files generated using the PDE Product Configuration Editor from Lotus
® Expeditor 6.1 or 6.1.x.
The format of the .xpdplatform
file is internal and is not intended to be used by tools outside of the Lotus
The Platform Editor provides a form-based multi-page editor to manage the platform configuration. All platforms are configured to be provisioned based on their features. Features should be created to contain any additional plug-ins desired for the platform.
