This command can be used by a Release Distributor to request receipt of a Resource file. The web service address for this call is the URL for the specific instance of the file as indicated in the NewReleaseMessage.

Note that t The The GET ERN Resource method only applies if the Release Creator has used an an HTTP link when communicating the location of the Resources in the NewReleaseMessage. Therefore, if the URI in the NewReleaseMessage uses a scheme other than http:// or https:// (or any protocol agreed by the parties), the Release Distributor may not be able to the use web services to obtain this Resource. This approach allows the combination ing of combination of the web service delivery approach defined herein for Release Release metadata with an (S)FTP or local file delivery for Resource files.


Other standard HTTP status codes may be used on bilateral agreement between between the Release Creator and the Release Distributor.

If the status code is 200, the Web server shall also return to the calling web service client the Resource file.

If the status code is 301, the Web server shall also return the updated URL of the resource. If the Resource itself (i.e. not just its URL) has changed, the Release Creator shall add a new NewReleaseMessage into its feed(s) and the Content Release the Release Distributor shall regard the entire NewReleaseMessage as invalid.
