To Create File on Desktop using Doors DXL OSLC service.

Hello everyone,

I am facing an issue while trying to create a .txt file on the desktop using Doors DXL OSLC services called through a Python API. Below is the DXL code I am using:

pragma encoding, "UTF-8"
pragma runLim, 0  // No limit

string getPath = (getenv("USERPROFILE"))"\\Desktop\\Export.txt"
Stream outputfile = write(getPath, CP_UTF8);
void getHelloString(string inputText)
    outputfile << inputText
    setDxlServiceResult "Done"


The API output returns <doors:result rdf:parseType="Literal">Done</doors:result> , indicating that the API is running successfully. However, the .txt file is not being created on the desktop.

Is there any way to create a .txt file on the desktop using OSLC services in Doors DXL?

I appreciate any insights or suggestions on how to resolve this issue.

Thank you!

 I don't have the slightest idea of how DXL works and what is syntax is. However, I think, if you set the service result to done without checking if your DXL operation actually worked, you should not expect anything other than what you see. 

I found this about error handling in file operations in DXL:
