Resource Name Property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:

The ResourceName property allows you to indicate the object to be run upon calling a service. In this use scenario you can run a Web Service generated with different generators.

Syntax

&DataType.ResourceName

Type Returned:
Numeric

Description

It means that you could change the webservice name, programming the location datatype or using the location.xml.

For example if you have the same webservices provided in Net and Java , in the following urls:

http://server1:port1/app/awebservice.aspx       (Net Url)
http://server2:port2/app/servlet/awebservice    (Java Url)

Yuu could inspect the Java Wsdl implementation of the webservice in order to create the external object (http://server2:port2/app/servlet/awebservice?wsdl). And after that invoke the Net implementation, just programming

&location = getlocation( '<External_Object_Name>' ) // get location information
&location.host = "server1"
&location.port = port1
&location.BaseUrl = "/app/"
....
&location.ResourceName = "awebservice.aspx" // set the ObjectName to call if needed.
