Module descriptor

A module descriptor is a Magnolia-specific file that identifies and defines the module.

  • For a Magnolia Maven module - the module descriptor is an XML file located at src/main/resources/META-INF/magnolia/<module-name>.xml.

  • For a Magnolia light module - the module descriptor is a YAML file located at $magnolia-resources.dir/<module-name>/module.yaml.

Please be aware that the YAML-based file does not support all features which are possible with the XML-based module descriptor. For more details please have a closer look at the detail pages.
