you can see an example in the following:
def addCMFSin(self, site_id):
""" install the CMFSin product """
# The installation works the same way as before:
# Get the site ...
site = getSite(self, site_id)
# ... create the install method ...
# ... and invoke it to install CMFSin.
# Now we want to configure the tool a bit:
# Again, we need the content of a file.
# This time it is again located in a subdirectory
# of the 'Extensions' folder.
instance_home = self.Control_Panel.getINSTANCE_HOME()
filepath = path.join(instance_home,
cfg_content = open(filepath,'r').read()
# Set the configuration as specified in the file:
# 'manage_configSin' is a method of the 'SinTool' class
# defined in Products.CMFSin.SinTool.py
# 'submit' can be set to 'Import', 'Export', or 'Set Config'
# to trigger different actions.
# In the web interface this is reflected by different
# buttons with the respective labels.
# Finally, add the 'zope_news' slot to the right-hand side
# of the portal's homepage by setting the value of 'right_slots'
# completely anew here. This will only affect Plone 1 sites since
# CMFDefault sites don't provide this property and Plone 2 has
# a different syntax here.
# 'manage_changeProperties' is another method of the
# 'PropertyManager' mentioned above.
