File system versus data base

If a theme is imported, updated, or created within the control panel it is stored in the data base (in the portal_resources).

By default collective.js.jqueryui provide sunburst theme. This one is considered the default one.

You can provide a theme in your add-on by simply embed it in a zope browser resource directory as usual. You just need to register a named utility providing IThemesProvider interface. A default base class is shipped in, so you will just have to inherits from it and just change RESOURCE_NAME and THEME_IDS class variables.

If a theme exist on the filesystem and in the database, the database has precedence.
