Hi Devs,

i'm currently developing a new tool for the administration view and 
successfully created a list and a simple add / edit dialog. I'm trying 
to understand the concept to (eventually) write down a small howto after 
i'm done. One thing that confuses me is the "path:" entry in the 
admintoolhandler-args property. I think(!) i understand why it is used 
(to structure the modules and create the breadcrumb), but i haven't yet 
found the advantage of using this property instead of "real" path's 
consisting of vfs-folders. Could you please point me into the right 
direction? I haven't looked into the source too much because if have 
just started to work on the project, so maybe i'm missing some 
fundamental point.

Any other hint's about tool development are greatly appreciated. So far 
i've found those links useful (for anybody who has the similar problems):
