  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • The documentation set should stress that getResourceURL are the
    DXL perms to be used to retrieve a URL (Object, Module,
    Baseline, Project, ...) while the DXL perms getURL() are only
    available for compatibility reasons.
    
    The DXL perms getResouceURL return the same value as the URL
    displaye in the Properties windows.
    The DXL perms getURL may return a different value if DWA is set
    up as the settings dwaHost, dwaPort and dwaProtocol are ignored.
    
    Here are all the prototypes of these DXL perms:
    
    string getResourceURL(Module)
    string getResourceURL(Object)
    string getResourceURL(ModuleVersion)
    string getResourceURL(ModName_)
    string getResourceURL(Folder)
    string getResourceURL(Project)
    string getResourceURL(Item)

Problem conclusion

  • The documentation has been updated to stress that the
    getResourceURL() perm should be used while the getURL() perm is
    only available for compatibility reason.
    This has been resolved in the DOORS 9.7 release.
