Hi all,

I am a little confused about share customisations. Are extensions and modules the same thing? Aren't amps just supposed to be modules? Also as far as customisation go I see some references to a *-extension.xml config file  (see blog-extension.xml)

and most to a *-modules.xml file. (extension-modules.xml)

http://docs.alfresco.com/4.2/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.alfresco.enterprise.doc%2Ftasks%2Fdev-extensions-share-tutorials-add-content.html


and some imply any file with .xml (see blog-demo.xml)

Which one is correct? Do all of them work? When would I use the one approach over another
