Assets Component

net.democritus:base-components::2024.0.0

The assets component handles the storage of files that can be up- or downloaded through an NS JEE application.

Asset Types

By default the assets component supports three types of assets.

Internal assets

The internal asset type (Asset.type == "INTERNAL") represents assets that are stored by the underlying database used by the application. These assets are handed off to the data layer for processing and are typically stored as BLOBs in an SQL database.

File assets

The file asset type (Asset.type == "FILE") represents assets that are stored on the filesystem of the application. The directory where uploaded files are stored is defined in a ParamTargetValue with parameter name fileUploadDirUri and target default.

Remote assets

The file asset type (Asset.type == "REMOTE") represents assets that are stored at a remote location. A String field RemoteAsset.url contains an URL to the location where the asset can be accessed.
