[opencms-dev] Programmatically creating a site with the OpenCms API

in the meantime I made some progress. This page was of help:


I think I can do all I need using functionality of CmsObject (
http://www.opencms.org/javadoc/core/org/opencms/file/CmsObject.html )

Just one missing part would be file uploads.

Ideally I would like to upload a logo from my "Site Creator" page.

Does the OpenCms api allow to do custom file uploads where you can specify
the target location in the vfs?

Best regards,
