Product Version


Product To Version



1 Introduction

Intershop 7.6 supports a new EMF model based XML for pipelines. This format is much more compact and compare/merge friendly.

2 Create Pipelines with New Format

Intershop Studio's Visual Pipeline Editor can edit EMF XML based pipeline files.

To create such new files:

  1. Use Save as... from the Visual Pipeline Editor.
    The new name has to end with *.pipeline.

3 Migrate Existing Pipelines

In order to migrate all pipelines of cartridges an export wizard is available in Intershop Studio.

  1. Go to File | Export | Intershop Studio.
  2. Select Pipelines *.xml files as *pipeline models and click Next.
  3. Select all cartridges for which the pipelines should be exported.
  4. In order to also remove the 'old' XML files select Remove XML files after export.

  5. Click Finish.
