Reply to: Reuse from URL

Hi Derek,

Yes, HTTP would be the first important one. I would assume that the resource to be reused must be accessible to everyone. Otherwise you have to build in authentication as well. But that's not the case for us.

You could think of a Subversion repository available via http://
Or a product configurator or a product name list.

The issue is that interesting if you are reusing for one specific subject. But especially if you want to reuse cross domain/subject/product, you don't want to be dependent on relative paths.

Secondly by having this, you could reuse easier information from external parties.
