xdmp:external-binary-path

xdmp:external-binary-path(
   source as binary()
) as xs:string?

Summary

Return the path to the external file associated with an external binary document.

Parameters
source The external binary node for which to retrieve the external file path.

Usage Notes

If the source binary node does not represent an external binary binary document, XDMP-ARG is thrown. That is, the source binary node must have been created by xdmp:external-binary. Use xdmp:binary-is-external to test whether or not a node represents an external binary.

Example

  xdmp:external-binary-path(doc("/movies/external-movie-1.mp4")/binary())

  => /space/binaries/movies/movie-1.mp4
