I have created a module that creates a site page inside a pages library. Is there a way we can dynamically set Url property of the Module node in the XML file? I would like to set the Url property dynamically, so that it will allow easier deployment between environments (i.e. Dev, QA, Prod). Thinking about using a Farm Level Property, Web Config key, etc.

 <Module Name="pages" Url="pages" List="101">

This url is relative so should not matter which environment you are deploying unless you want to deploy in different libraries in different environments.. is that the case? – justforkix09 Feb 28 '12 at 19:35
yes. I need to deploy to different libraries. Is there a way to do this? Thanks for any help provided. – obautista Feb 28 '12 at 21:07
IMO cannot be done without custom coding. You need to write an feature receiver code which will read url from web.config/web/farm property and upload the file. – justforkix09 Feb 29 '12 at 4:19

Web Scoped Features with Relative Paths:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="">
    <Module Name="TestDocLibrary" Url="TestDocLibrary" RootWebOnly="FALSE">
        <File Path="TestDocLibrary\doc1.doc" Type="GhostableInLibrary" Url="doc1.doc" Name="doc1.doc" />
        <File Path="TestDocLibrary\doc2.doc" Type="GhostableInLibrary" Url="doc2.doc" Name="doc2.doc" />

This puts two files in the TestDocLibrary of the web that the feature was activated on.
