         I do not know the answer to your question. I have not actually 
attempted to compile any of the source code, not even the source code for 
the modules. I will probably attempt to do so eventually, in a month or 
two. I am still trying to learn how to administer OpenCMS.

         The OpenCMS web site states that the "module mechanism 
documentation . . . explains how to create a module, export it . . . and 
import it. See www.opencms.org/opencms/en/download/modules (the heading 
"module mechanism documentation").
