Coding with Standard Classes and Libraries

Take a look inside the Configuration folder, which is in the same folder as the Dreamweaver application, and you’ll see two important folders: one named JSExtensions, and one named Shared. Inside these folders are a treasure trove of JavaScript and C++ code and other resources that you can employ in your own extensions. Indeed, much of this code is already in use by many of the standard extensions that ship with Dreamweaver. In this section, we’ll examine some of these prebuilt libraries and classes and how they can be used by your own projects.

The Dreamweaver Standard Libraries

Inside the Shared folder of the Dreamweaver MX Configuration folder, you will find a couple of folders named Common and MM. This is where Macromedia stores the JavaScript libraries and other resources that are shared among the Macromedia extensions and provided for use by third parties. The general convention is that, if you create your own code libraries and want to make them available to other developers, you should create your own folder inside the Shared folder with the name of your company or other identifying name and store the code in there.
