This product is the result of a summer of code 2008 project. As you can see, it's still in development, so there are just a couple of configurations and forms, but not a working product yet.
This is the abstract for this project.

Want to test this product?
First of all, create a new plone3 buildout. This product does not have releases yet, please don't use it in a real site.
In the just created buildout, go to the src folder, and there checkout plone.app.batch:
svn co https://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/plone.app.batch/trunk plone.app.batch
In the following snippets pay attention to the bold lines. In buildout.cfg, add plone.app.batch under eggs and development in the [buildout] part
# Add additional eggs here # elementtree is required by Plone eggs = elementtree plone.app.batch # Reference any eggs you are developing here, one per line # e.g.: develop = src/my.package develop = src/plone.app.batch
As plone.app.batch depends on plone.z3cform, we need to do some configurations in order to have it working fine.
You will need to take a look to the Using "fake eggs" section of the plone.z3cform howto.
Finally, and under zcml in the [instance] part:
# If you want to register ZCML slugs for any packages, list them here. # e.g. zcml = my.package my.other.package zcml = plone.app.batch
After running buildout again you should have plone.app.batch. Go to portal_quickinstaller (or site setup -> add-on products) and install Plone App Batch.
No stable release available yet.
