Class UrlAsset

    • Method Detail

      • toClientURL

        public String toClientURL()
        Description copied from interface: Asset
        Returns a URL that can be passed, unchanged, to the client in order for it to access the resource. The same value is returned from toString(). Tapestry's built-in asset types (context and classpath) always incorporate a checksum as part of the path, and alternate implementations are encouraged to do so as well. In addition, Tapestry ensures that context and classpath assets have a far-future expires header (to ensure aggressive caching by the client). Note that starting in Tapestry 5.4, it is expected that Asset instances recognize when the underlying Resource's content has changed, and update the clientURL to reflect the new content's checksum. This wasn't an issue in earlier releases where the clientURL incorporated a version number. Finally, starting in 5.4, this value will often be variant: the exact URL returned will depend on whether the underlying resource content is compressable, whether the current Request supports compression.
