Import Requirements

To use Wormhole accessor you must import the module urn:com:1060research:www3:

<import>
  <uri>urn:com:1060research:www3</uri>
</import>

The Wormhole accessor provides a mechanism to issue requests into a known but not imported space.

space / version arguments

The space argument must be the full identity uri of the target rootspace. The version argument is optional and may specifiy a version number of the space to target. If not specified and multiple versions of the target rootspace exist the latest version is used.

These values are equivalent to the parameters used when specifying a module import.

uri / request arguments

uri and request are mutually exclusive arguments. They define two distinct modes of constructing wormhole requests.

  • If request argument is specified then the argument will be SOURCEd as an XML document in the target space. The XML representation must be a declarative request - the delarative request will be issued into the space.
  • If uri argument is specified the identifier will be SOURCEd in the space - this simple syntax is a convenience and could be accomplished with a full declarative request.
