Accessing local resources from the Web Component

Let's suppose we include a web component that needs to display a signature, and the signature image file is somewhere in the file system. Complying with standard web server specifications, Thinfinity VirtualUI forbids the access to files that are not in the root web tree. This means that to access that image file, you would be forced to first place it in the application's web tree. This wouldn't be neat!

With the purpose of providing secure urls to files that are not within the web tree root, we included the CreateSessionURL and GetUniqueURL methods. These methods help you create virtual URLs for the application session's lifetime, or for a specific file and valid only during a specified lifetime, in minutes.
