This RESOURCE element defines general GAS settings that can be used in the definition of applications and components, and in external application configuration files.


<RESOURCE Id=res-id [Source={"INTERNAL"|"ENVIRON"}]>res-data</RESOURCE>
  1. res-id is the unique identifier of the resource.
  2. The Source attribute specifies the location of the resource. This attribute is optional.
    The GAS locates the resource based on the value of the Source attribute, if specified.
    • If Source is INTERNAL, the resource is resolved to the location provided.
    • If Source is ENVIRON, the resource is the name of an environment variable, which represents the location of the resource.

      If Source is not specified, the resource defaults to INTERNAL.

  3. res-data is the value of the resource.
