lifecycle

The lifecycle element allows a web script developer to indicate the development status of a web script. Typically, web scripts start out in a draft state while being developed or tested, are promoted to production quality for widespread use, and finally retired at the end of their life. The lifecycle element is optional.

The lifecycle element can have the following values:

none
Indicates this web script is not part of a lifecycle
sample
Indicates this web script is a sample and is not intended for production use
draft
Indicates this web script might be incomplete, experimental, or still subject to change
public_api
Indicates this web script is part of a public API and should be stable and well tested
draft_public_api
Indicates this web script is intended to become part of the public API but is incomplete or still subject to change
deprecated
Indicates this web script should be avoided; it might be removed in future versions of the product
internal
Indicates this web script is for Alfresco use only; it should not be relied upon between versions and is likely to change

The lifecycle element has no attributes.
