Integrate a schema

This guide described how to (re)compile your schema and where to place it in the application structure.Because Fonto uses a compiled version of your schema any changes you make to your schema require you to recompile.

For more information on the files needed for a schema bundle read the Getting started.

  1. Install or update the Fonto development tools and it's requirements, and make sure you have placed a valid Fonto (developer) license on your system.
  2. Open a command prompt in you editor instance folder, or from the schema source folder if there is no editor instance yet.
  3. Run the fdt editor schema compile <pathToSchemaSource> command. These files should have been created during the initialization of the application. If there are new schemas to be added, add them to the fonto.json and catalog.xml files.

  4. The compiled schema files are placed in the appropriate schema packages. Or in a packages folder when the command is not run in an editor instance folder.
