Profile: desktop, common


This class represents a stored entity on the platform. Typically, this can be equated to a file, although no guarantee is made as to the storage mechanism or implementation. The storage lifetime of a resource is until it is deleted, either by the application or by the user. Therefore, data saved during one run of an application should be available upon the next run; this is not considered a cache storage mechanism.

The maxLength of a resource can be set, although the resultant value may differ from what was requested. Maximum sizes are governed by platform limits as well as available storage space.
