Configuring Applications

The Tizen Web application configuration file is composed of XML elements, including the <widget> element as its root and other elements. These elements represent application information, such as configuration elements and Tizen extending configuration elements for mobile and wearable applications.

This configuration information is used when you install or run the Tizen Web application on the Tizen platform. The Tizen Web application project must have the config.xml file in the project root directory.

The configuration file can be easily edited with the Web application configuration editor (form editor), or you can modify the XML structure directly using the configuration source editor. With the form editor, you can set the project configuration (manifest), even if you have no experience with developing a Tizen Web application project. If you are fluent with the configuration file XML structure, you can create the configuration file directly through the configuration source editor.

Note The config.xml must conform to both the XML file format and the W3C specification requirements. Editing the file XML structure with the configuration source editor is intended for advanced users only.

Editing the config.xml File

There are 2 different ways to edit the config.xml file:

  • Use the Source tab:

    1. Double-click the config.xml file in the Project Explorer view.
    2. Select the Source tab.

  • Use the form tabs:

    2. Select one of the form tabs (Overview, Features, Privileges, Localization, Policy, Preferences, Tizen).
