XML documents are text documents in a tree structure consisting of so called nodes. usually have a main node with arbitrary sub nodes assigned to it.
Nodes are defined by tags, consisting of an opening and closing angle bracket and a name. Apart from that nodes can also have an arbitrary number of attributes consisting of a precise name and value (attribname=“value“).
Nodes with sub nodes need to be closed with an identically named node tag with a preceding single slash symbol (<knot>…</knot>). Nodes without sub nodes are closed by a slash symbol following a closing angle bracket (<knot attrib1=“value“ attrib2=“value“ />).
XML files are used within AppSuite to save various settings for instance parameters for apps, which can be set via the integrated graphic user interface in AppManager. Sometimes it may be neccessary though to edit files manually. In this case you will only need a simple text editor to get the job done.
Advice Please be extra cautious when editing XML files manually. Even a missing bracket can already lead to faults within AppSuite resp. app.
Tip Manual editing of XML files does become much more pleasant when executed with a syntax highlighting editor. We recommend the Notepad++ tool, ready for free download here www.notepad-plus-plus.org.
