I installed source code of DNN v8.0 CTP7 and compiled first in debug and then release mode and I went through Install wizard.

I was trying to understand why some modules like DigitalAssets are installed in 
  - bin folder: DotNetNuke.Modules.DigitalAssets.dll  and 

  - DesktopModules\DigitalAssets folder: EditFolderMapping.ascx, View.ascx, module.css etc

However, when I run this SQL statement:
  SELECT ModuleControlID FROM ModuleControls where ControlSrc like '%DigitalAssets%'

I am not getting anything. This module is a non admin module.
I also don't see a basic HTML module in DB tables? 

Can someone explain what is going on?

What modules are or will be shipped by default in v8.0 once it is released and will Install wizard install them initially?

What modules will be "available" by default?

What modules that used to be installed and available in v7+ will need to be downloaded from somewhere else?


I have a related second question:
Is there a way to associate types that inherit from  DnnApiController
(which I can find using: 
IEnumerable<Type> types = GetAllServiceRouteMapperTypes();)
and their DesktopModules definition record in DB? 

I want to collect ModuleName and FriendlyName for each WebAPI type that implements DnnApiController  that is installed.

From above type I can get assembly information like: type.GetType().Assembly

I know that each package will have one or more assemblies in <component type="Assembly"> node.

So I can potentially have 1 to many assemblies installed with my package some of which will contain types that inherit DnnApiController.

The problem is that this fact is not recorded in DB and lost in translation during a package installation. 

Note: this second question is related because DigitalAssets dll has a type that inherits DnnApiController but I don't know how to associate it with the package/destkopmodule because it info is missing from DB. 

Thanks,

Rad

Hello Rad;
Yes, we are making changes to what modules are shipped in Platform 8

We will no longer be shipping the following modules and they won't be available in CodePlex:
  1. Getting Started
  2. Advanced Settings
  3. Content List
  4. Feed Browser
  5. Professional Preview
  6. What's New

The following modules will not ship and be available in Codeplex:

  1. Site Log
  2. Vendors 
  3. Banners
  4. Newsletters

As to your other questions:

DLL's whenever possible will always reside in the BIN folder.

Digital Asset Management(DAM) aka File Manager is a module you'll find it listed in dbo.ModuleDefinitions

Thanks.

Did you read my second question?

File Management etc. should be installed in each website in admin and usually should be available as Admin module.
Module controls is not relevant but moduledefinitions and portaldesktopmodules

I resolved the issue of missing modules after first debug and release builds and doing another release which generated all modules packages and I went to Install Wizard and overrode existing module definitions and the remaining (previously missing) modules appeared. Wonder why (maybe some bug).

Can whoever reads this post try to answer my second question?
