Studio File System

When you install and configure UX Studio, you choose the location of the various files, namely:

Files Location example Notes
Executable UX Studio files c:\studio\Studio (default) Microsoft Windows only.
Workspace

c:\projects\workspace

Should be different from executable file location.

Server and property files are stored in Workspace folders. These files change infrequently and are usually specific to the local Studio environment.

  • Consists of projects, files and directories
  • Can contain multiple projects from multiple repositories
  • Files are created as standard files, which allows use of tools/editors
  • Contains .metadata (plug-in subdirectories)
Server files

c:\projects\CommerceCloudServer

CAUTION:
Cannot be the same as the Workspace location, or unexpected results will occur.

You can create multiple server connection cartridges within your Studio workspace.

Contains .settings and .project files.

Warning: Don't modify server files, or unexpected results will occur.
Project-specific files, including new cartridges, pipelines and templates c:\projects\MyStore

Use separate (project) folders to store cartridges and other files that change frequently. These files should also be under source control.

  • Can be opened, closed, built or shared
  • Can consist of one or more cartridges
  • Each cartridge contains directories for forms, pipelines, scripts, static files, templates, webreferences files and a <cartridge_name>.properties file, which enables the system to load and run the cartridge.
  • You can store cartridges in one or more local directories.
  • You can rename cartridges
