Abstract

This paper discusses the concept of User Assigned Service Guaranteed Unique Names in a DIA Library. This concept allows for an alternate naming scheme to the DIA Library Assigned Document Name (LADN). A document receives a LADN when it is filed into the Library. It can also receive a Unique Name which the User requests. The Service verifies that the Name is Unique within the scope specified by the request. The scope of a request may be either the Library or a DIA Folder. These Unique Names may be combined into a Fully Qualified Unique Name (FQUN), which may be used to identify or reference the document in DIA Commands.

Unique Document-In-Library Name

      This paper discusses the concept of User Assigned Service
Guaranteed Unique Names in a DIA Library. This concept allows for an
alternate naming scheme to the DIA Library Assigned Document Name
(LADN). A document receives a LADN when it is filed into the Library.
It can also receive a Unique Name which the User requests. The
Service verifies that the Name is Unique within the scope specified
by the request. The scope of a request may be either the Library or a
DIA Folder. These Unique Names may be combined into a Fully Qualified
Unique Name (FQUN), which may be used to identify or reference the
document in DIA Commands.

      The DIA Library assigns a LADN in each document filed into the
Library. This name consists of a Date and Time Stamp and a Library
Identifier. The LADN must be used to retrieve or access the document.
If a Search is done which selects the document, the entry in the
Search Results Document, containing the LADN, may also be used to
identify the document for further actions. There was no alternative
to the LADN for the User to identify his or her document in the
Library.

      The new concept is to add an optional method to identify a
document in a DIA Library, by a user assigned name. The Unique
Document-in-Library Name serves as a label to the relationship
between the document and the Library. The service guarantees the
uniqueness of the name against all other documents which have
requested a unique name...
