generate transferproject package


is it possible to generate a transferproject package on your own, for example with tcl scripts, without doing an export from a CMS


RE: generate transferproject package


Yes, it can be done using some string processing, but... why ?


RE: generate transferproject package

Hi John,

we want to simulate a huge content repository. And we have to do some tests on how BOB behaves with 1.000/10.000/100.000+ files per project folder. So we want to generate some transferproject packages to import lots of dummy static files to different folders.


RE: generate transferproject package

Hi Kai,

I don't understand why you want to test how BOB behaves, but anyway.
You know that BOB is single-threaded and so your request will scale up while increasing the files.
But anyway a transferproject-file is not easily created. The format is rather ugly and Vignette won't take any input that's not exactly the format it expects.
I crashed the vignette-server several times trying to develop my TrapEd-Tool.
You could use TrapEd for generating transferproject-files. It's a windows-program usually used for modifying existing transferproject-files (*.attr). But it has an "import"-function. With that you can generated an transferproject-attr-file by simply importing a local directory. All files will be imported as templates .. depending on your configuration.
You can have a look at:
or simply contact me.
Best regards
