Description Daniel Berrange 2004-01-26 10:21:06 EST
Description of problem:
Each content type is reponsible for registering an authoring kit for
itself. There are, however, a number of genral purpose assets such as
dublin core, file attachments and related links which need to augment
the authoring kits for all content types in the CMS. Obviously the
master content type kit definitions themselves can't reference these
assets, since the is no way to know in advance if an asset will be
installed on the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I have a solution pending checkin as follows:

Create an abstract class called ContentAssetInitializer. Generic
assets such as dublin core, related links, etc subclass this and
implement the abstract methods to return information about their
drop-in authoring kit step. 

     * The base type against which the asset is defined,
     * typically com.arsdigita.cms.ContentPage
    public abstract String getBaseType();
     * The class of the authoring kit step
    public abstract Class getAuthoringStep();

     * The label for the authoring step
    public abstract GlobalizedMessage getAuthoringStepLabel();
     * The description for the authoring step
    public abstract GlobalizedMessage getAuthoringStepDescription();

Upon startup the step for these assets are registered with
AuthoringKitWizard UI class such that when it loads an authoring kit
from the DB, it appends the steps for all registered assets.
