    FileURN

    public abstract class URNResource
    extends URN
    The URN resource contains information of for local server environment from where it was originated. Thus the final URL could vary depending on the server and/or cluster configuration.

    Resource URN's are encoded in IIZI as:

    urn:nssPrefix:type:identifier

    where the valid nssPrefix currently values are:

    and types are (in lower case):

    • {@link URNResourceType#COMMON_DATABASE_PERSISTENT}:
      Common server files stored in database (cached on the server even for starts/stops),
    • {@link URNResourceType#COMMON_PERSISTENT}:
      Common server files (persists when server starts/stops),
    • {@link URNResourceType#COMMON_VOLATILE}:
      Common server files (volatile when server starts/stops),
    • {@link URNResourceType#EXTERNAL_FILES}:
      External files (typically accessible using the 'file:' protocol),
    • {@link URNResourceType#APPLICATION_DATABASE_PERSISTENT}:
      Application files in database,
    • {@link URNResourceType#APPLICATION_PERSISTENT}:
      Application files,
    • {@link URNResourceType#APPLICATION_VOLATILE}:
      Application files,
    • {@link URNResourceType#GROUP_DATABASE_FILES}:
      Private user group files stored in database (cached on server),
    • {@link URNResourceType#USER_FILES}:
      Private user files,
    • {@link URNResourceType#USER_DATABASE_FILES}:
      Private user files stored in database (cached on server),
    • {@link URNResourceType#APP_SESSION}:
      Application session (private) files,
