|Extension Point||Surf Extension Modules|
|Architecture Information||Share Architecture.|
Surf Extension Modules are the main tool to use when adding, updating, or hiding content in the Alfresco Share User Interface (UI). They can be deployed and un-deployed during runtime. A module is defined in XML and stored in the site-data/extensions directory.
Working with these extension modules assume a certain knowledge of the Alfresco Surf UI development framework. Make sure that you have read through the Share Architecture section and the Surf deep dive section.
This section covers the following:
|Deployment - App Server||tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/site-data/extensions (Untouched by re-depolyments and upgrades)|
|Deployment - SDK Project||share-amp/src/main/amp/config/alfresco/web-extension/site-data/extensions|
|More Information||For a comprehensive introduction to Extension Modules see this page, which also compares Share configuration with Extension Modules.|
