I'd like to be able to link to certain topic files from another application.
Ideally, I'd like to map/link to the URL of a specific topic, and have the player open to that specific topic's web page and be ready to launch (rather than linking to the UPK player to the default, first topic and having the user locate the relevant topic.)
Because all of the topics are swimming around in a java land, it seems impossible to me. Cookie? I have no idea.
Anyway, the reason I don't want to publish a standalone topic for this purpose is because I have usage tracking enabled, and I don't want to be messing about with that can of worms.
Ok, I pretty much have it solved now so I'm going to close the question.
Ideally, I wanted to be able to automatically open the UPK player to a specific course, rather than having a user use the tree to find a specific course. I wanted to do this by using certain URLs, if possible.
Does that clear it up?
I couldn't find a way to do that. So what I did is: From an external application, I linked directly to the topics. Every topic has a URL assigned to it. You can find each topic playmode's URL by opening this page:
