How to get latest version of asset


Abhinav Ajmera (2212920) | asked Sep 03 '10, 9:43 a.m.
Is there any way we can get latest version out of RAM?

There is session.getAsset(new AssetIdentification(String GUID, String Version) ) but I don't see any method in RAM API which will give latest version automatically, it always aspect programmer to provide the version to get the asset (what if user doesn't know latest version)...

PS : its for RAM 7.2

According to this, you can use
session.getAsset(new AssetIdentification(GUID));
to retrieve the latest version.

I am aware that, API mention method session.getAsset(new AssetIdentification(GUID)); (The link you mentioned also show it, but if you open class API, that does not contain this method... Refer http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ramhelp/v7r2m0/topic/com.ibm.ram.api.doc/topics/com/ibm/ram/common/data/AssetIdentification.html?resultof=%22AssetIdentification%22%20%22assetidentif%22)

I even tried it before posting question... But it is not supported in actual... you can try it out in some program..

Use session.getAsset(new AssetIdentification(GUID, "*");
