Creating New Resources

Percussion provides five options for creating new resources:

Resources fall into three categories:

  • Query resources retrieve data from the Repository, map it to an XML document, and apply formatting from any XSL stylesheet that might be associated with the resource.
  • Update resources modify the Repository with data drawn from an XML document.
  • Non-text Resources retriever binary data, such as graphic files, from the Repository.
