Building the module

Check out the project if you have not already done so

    git clone git://

An Ant build script is provided to build AMP files OR JAR files containing the custom files.
Before building, ensure you have edited the file to set the path to your Alfresco SDK.

To build AMP files, run the following command from the base project directory:

    ant dist-amp

If you want to build JAR files, run the following command:

    ant dist-jar

Installing the module

This extension is a standard Alfresco Module, so experienced users can skip these steps and proceed as usual.

1st method: Installing AMPs (recommended)

  1. Stop Alfresco

  2. Use the Alfresco Module Management Tool to install the modules in your Alfresco and Share WAR files:

     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install zip-contents-alfresco-module-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco.war -force
     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install zip-contents-share-module-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share.war -force
  3. Delete the $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco/ and $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share/ folders.
    Caution: please ensure you do not have unsaved custom files in the webapp folders before deleting.

  4. Start Alfresco

2nd method: Installing JARs

  1. Stop Alfresco
  2. Copy JAR files
    • Copy share-zip-contents-action.jar into the /tomcat/shared/lib/ folder of your Alfresco.
    • Copy zip-contents-alfresco-webscript.jar into the /tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/ folder of your Alfresco.
  3. Start Alfresco

Using the module

"Compress and download" action will now be available in the folder's actions list.

This extension will be a native feature in Alfresco 4.2 and above versions.
