XML::API::WIX2
WIX source file generation through an object API

XML::API::WIX2 - WIX source file generation through an object API


NAME

XML::API::WIX2 - WIX source file generation through an object API


SYNOPSIS

As a simple example the following perl code:


  use XML::API;

  my $m_wxs = new XML::API('doctype' => 'WIX2', 'encoding' => 'UTF-8');

  $m_wxs->Product_open({

    Id => '12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012',

    Name => 'Test Package',

    Language => '1033',

    Version => '1.0.0.0',

    Manufacturer => 'Microsoft Corporation',

    });

  $m_wxs->Package({

    Id => '12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012',

    Description => 'My first Windows Installer package',

    Comments => 'This is my first attempt at creating a Windows Installer database',

    Manufacturer => 'Microsoft Corporation',

    InstallerVersion => '200',

    Compressed => 'yes',

    });

  $m_wxs->Media({ Id =>'1', Cabinet => 'product.cab', EmbedCab => 'yes'});

  $m_wxs->Directory_open({ Id => 'TARGETDIR', Name => 'SourceDir'});

  $m_wxs->Directory_open({ Id => "ProgramFilesFolder", Name => "PFiles"});

  $m_wxs->Directory_open({ Id => "TESTFILEPRODUCTDIR", Name => "TFolder", LongName => "TestFolder"});

  $m_wxs->Component_open({ Id => 'License', Guid => '12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012'});

  $m_wxs->File({ Id => "License", Name => "License.rtf", DiskId => "1", Source => "License.rtf"});

  $m_wxs->Component_close();

  $m_wxs->Directory_close();

  $m_wxs->Directory_close();

  $m_wxs->Directory_close();

  $m_wxs->Feature_open({ Id => 'License', Title => 'License files', Level => '1'});

  $m_wxs->ComponentRef({ Id => 'License' });

  $m_wxs->Feature_close();

  $m_wxs->Property({Id => "WIXUI_INSTALLDIR", Value => "TESTFILEPRODUCTDIR"});

  $m_wxs->UIRef({Id => "WixUI_Mondo"});

  $m_wxs->Product_close();

  $m_wxs->_print;

will produce the following nicely rendered output:




  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

DESCRIPTION

XML::API::WIX2 is a perl object class for creating WIX version 2 source files. The methods of a XML::API::WIX2 object are derived directly from the wix.xsd specification.

At the time of writing the XML valiadation is not implemented in XML::API. So make sure you follow the Wix specifications or the source won't compile.
