Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to How to get an instance url from a package key?

Posted by Stephen . on
Looking back at Jerry's old post I see that apm_package_id_from_key was created.
As you said, you could have a package key, but couldn't precisely determine the url (or the proper instance) of the package without diving into the SQL.
If the package you're interested in is not a singleton or service, or cannot be found with site_node_closest_ancestor_package* then the proper instance of a package is a tricky thing to define, or at least package specific, I think...
