Deploy a custom STSADM command using wspbuilde

Mar 3, 2010 at 7:09 PM

Hi,

Hope someone can help with this

I'm using wspbuilder to create a .wsp package that will deploy a custom stsadm command. I need the .wsp to include an .xml command file:

<commands>
<command name="mycustomcommand"....../>
</commands>

This file according to technet http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb417382.aspx needs to be added the the 12/CONFIG folder. I tried adding a 12/CONFIG structure to my project and having the file located there but the .wsp package still does not contain it when I choose to build the .wsp.

Is there a way of achieving this with the wspbuilder?

All the best.

I am starting to get into Sharepoint Build/Deployment and am also interested in the answer to this question.

Well, the good news is that it should work. That bad news is that it _should_ work. I have a project that includes about 15 commands I wrote, and I haven't done anything special. I simply have a 12 hive structure with a CONFIG folder containing the stsadmcommands.xml file. What does the output from WSPBuilder look like?
