IP-Xact catalog file issue

Recommended Posts

I have a question about using the new ip-Xact catalog file.


You can use this to get the relative path to any other ip_Xact file including other catalog files.  How do we handle pointing to another catalog file that is contained in a different RCS repository?


To do this you need to know where the user placed that repository in their design environment relative to your repository and the name that they called it.


You have no way of knowing either piece of information.


If you mandate the name and location for that repository then you are violating the fundamental IP-Xact  principle that says the user has full control of all file and directory names.
