Static Link to Primary Content File

Hi Folks,

Anyone know of a way to create link to the highest version of a primary content file?

 

If not, how about a static link to the object itself?

 

Perhaps post a link on a document:

Create a JSP page that accepts a parameter (docNumber). Then it has to get the latest version (Released for Production) of the document by querying, from a URL for the information page and forward it to that URL.

If anybody have idea please help

 

Re: Static Link to Primary Content File

Hi @mpalanisamy1,

 

You can use Info Engine task and Get-ContentItems to get the content and create the URL link as follows, it will get the latest document using Search-Object and then the content.

http://localhost/Windchill/servlet/IE/tasks/ext/getdoccontent.xml?where=(number='0000000041')

 

You can check the following code for reference, though I haven't tested it thoroughly.

Re: Static Link to Primary Content File

Thanks Bushan.

It is not creating URL link for one document. For all WT Documents it should create automatically

 

Thanks

Mohana

Re: Static Link to Primary Content File

Hi Mohan, @mpalanisamy1

I understand, but once you have the task file saved. The URL can be created for any document (or all documents) by just replacing the document number, it should not be a big task.

Re: Static Link to Primary Content File

I am working on a JSP page but I think the basics are covered. I would really like to extend to Secondary content and plot/PDF files in the representation but I thought I should share this.  Drop into content folder under netmarkets/jsp folder.  Secondary content might not work since you can have a number of secondary content and which one do you send. I am not about to add a zip it routine to this so I might give on that.  K.I.S.S.

Right now, this is only working primary content on WTDocuments and have not tested it with EPMDocuments.

Re: Static Link to Primary Content File

That is pretty remarkable piece of code, @avillanueva 

 

I'd like to add that for Windchill 10.2 the link to this, let's call it ContentDownload.jsp, can be generated using the following java code

 

String theWTServerCodebase = "";
try {
    theWTServerCodebase = wt.util.WTProperties
         .getLocalProperties().getProperty("wt.server.codebase");
} catch (java.io.IOException e) {
     System.out.println("IOException:" + "\n" + e);
}
String dlUrl = theWTServerCodebase + "/app/netmarkets/jsp/<custom_folder_path>/ContentDownload.jsp?number=<custom_wtDoc_number>";
String displayName = "link name";
String link = "<a href=\"" + dlUrl + "\">" + displayName + "</a>";
System.out.println(link);
