Geometry Configuration

Complete: 3

Simple description

The DDD (Detector Description) requires an XML file conforming to CMSSW/SWGuideDetectorDescription/Schema/CDLSchema.xsd.


Here is a simple example:

<Configuration xmlns="." xmlns:xsi="." xsi:schemaLocation= "." name="CMSConfiguration" version="0">
  <File name="Geometry/CMSCommonData/data/materials.xml"            url="."/>
  <File name="Geometry/CMSCommonData/data/rotations.xml"            url="."/>
  <File name="Geometry/CMSCommonData/data/MagneticFieldVolumes.xml" url="."/>
  <Root fileName="MagneticFieldVolumes.xml" logicalPartName="MAGF"/>
  <Schema schemaLocation="" validation="true"/>

Files are found via the FileInPath mechanism therefore the url is ignored and the name is relative to that mechanisms settings. Root specifies the root node in the graph that is to be used to create a DDCompactView. The Schema element allows the user to turn validation on an off for the included File elements. NOTE: Validation is set OFF right now hard-coded, for a number of reasons.
