Open Object URL

TDC provides a generic "open object" servlet. This servlet requires the user to specify the tool (e.g. erwin Data Modeler) and tool-specific parameters that identify the object (e.g. modelName or modelLocator, and objectId). The servlet resolves the tool-specific model/Object Identification parameters into MM-specific ones (backend) and uses them to redirects the browser to the appropriate TDC UI.

 The Open Object servlet takes the following parameters (http://localhost:19980/MM/OpenObject?param1=value1&param2=value2):
