I am trying to ascertain a BOM without pulling up the assembly (traverse the assembly structure). One way I thought of doing this was to retrieve a simplified rep, but even that looks like it wants the assembly in session first. Is there a way to.....
a) Directly create and open a simplified rep? I get a ModelDescriptor error when passing a full path'd name (which means, I assume, that the assembly must be in session).
b) Get the Assembly BOM prior to opening the full model?
I'm interested in non-interactive mode (i.e. using the retrieve with options flag isn't desired).
Just in case anyone didn't know, the only way to crawl assembly structure (using JLink) is to have it in session. I still don't know about the opening a simp rep to start, though. I'm assuming it will still only allow the prompt and then you can create the simp rep once it's in session.
