Site Schema

This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies. This page may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

The Site schema of Introduction to Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) is used to define metadata for creating site collections and Web sites. A site definition specifies the navigation bars, list templates, document templates, list base types, configurations, modules, components, and server email footer for creating sites. The site definition is specified through an Onet.xml file located in Local_Drive:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extenstions\12\TEMPLATE\SiteTemplates, and through a WebTemp.xml file located in \TEMPLATE\1033\XML.

Sites and Document or Meeting Workspace sites can be created or modified programmatically through the object model (for example, members of the SPWeb and SPWebCollection classes, or members of the SPSite and SPSiteCollection classes). They can also be remotely created or modified through the Administration Web service (methods of the Admin class), the Document Workspace Web service (methods of Dws), or the Meetings Web service (members of Meetings).
