Shimano Sora brakes, Installation and adjustment

Im looking for an article, manual or instructions that helps when trying to install or adjust the Shimano Sora brakes.
I searched Sheldon but dont really know what articles are relevant?
Are Sora Caliper or Cantilever?
Perhaps a wee stupid question but....
A little help?

the sora are calipers. the caliper with the longer bolt goes to the fork , shorter one to the back of the frame. mount them to where they go. hookup the cables . if one pad hit the rim adjust using the strew in or out until it clear the rim .
