I have a feature module which consists of an XML file which adds ConsoleNodes to the Site Actions menu. To test it, it seems I must compile the package, deploy it, activate it, etc. Since this is very time consuming, I am hoping there is a better workflow.
Is there a way to get changes to the ConsoleNode XML to show up in SharePoint without going through this entire process?
I've tried modifying the XML file in the 14\Template\Features[FeatureName] folder directly, as well as using the CKSDev "Copy To SharePoint root" function, but neither of these cause SharePoint to pick up the changes to the XML.
