BSCW’s internal address format

BSCW generates an internal address for every object. This address is shown in the ‘Address’, ‘Location’ or similar field of your Web browser while the browser displays the object. When the browser displays a text/html document named article, the address field might show:


You may use this internal address in a link tag in any HTML document:

<A HREF="http://your-bscw-server/bscw/bscw.cgi/d3014/article.html">Article</A>

It may also be abbreviated as

<A HREF="/bscw/bscw.cgi/d3014/article.html">Article</A>

when both documents reside on the same server.

If you want to allow anonymous access to article.html, the address has to be modified to

<A HREF="http://your-bscw-server/pub/bscw.cgi/d3014/article.html">Article</A>

For details see 3.5.1 Allowing anonymous access.
