The following recipes show how to create simple content. As we don't want to rely on a specific installation with predefined content types we first show how to create a content type group and a simple content type within this group. Then we will create a content object of the newly created content type. The last two recipes show how to create content containing images and xml text.

Creating a content type group

This snippet creates a content type group for a given identifier (Full code here).

If this snipped is run with the same init code from recipe 1 we will get an UnauthorizedException.

The solution is described in the next recipe.

Setting the user for authorizing actions

By default the repository assumes the anonymous user is acting. To change this the following code can be executed


If the user is identified by other mechanisms the user also can be loaded by its id via the service method


Creating a content type

With this snipped a content type with two fields of type 'ezstring' is created. (Full code here).

Translating content

It is the same code as for updating (see recipe 6). The initial language should be set to the translation language.


Multiple translations at once

It is possible to to make an update in content  or create content with more than one language. But there is a restriction - only one language can be assigned to the newly created version (which is displayed in the 4.x admin GUI in the translations column).
