Detailed Description

Interface for all content upload handlers.

This defines the interface for upload handlers for content objects. The handler will be used if upload.ini is configured for a specific MIME type. The uploading system is general and will be used both by Web uploads as well as WebDAV PUT requests.

The handler must inherit this class and implement the following methods:

  • handleFile() - This takes care of creating content objects from the uploaded file.

Also the constructor must pass a proper name and identifier to the eZContentUploadHandler.
