getResource

Resource getResource(String resourceName,
                     int resourceType,
                     String encoding)
                     throws ResourceNotFoundException,
                            ParseErrorException
Gets the named resource. Returned class type corresponds to specified type (i.e. Template to RESOURCE_TEMPLATE).

Parameters:
resourceName - The name of the resource to retrieve.
resourceType - The type of resource (RESOURCE_TEMPLATE, RESOURCE_CONTENT, etc.).
encoding - The character encoding to use.
Returns:
Resource with the template parsed and ready.
Throws:
ResourceNotFoundException - if template not found from any available source.
ParseErrorException - if template cannot be parsed due to syntax (or other) error.

getLoaderNameForResource

String getLoaderNameForResource(String resourceName)
Determines is a template exists, and returns name of the loader that provides it. This is a slightly less hokey way to support the Velocity.templateExists() utility method, which was broken when per-template encoding was introduced. We can revisit this.

Parameters:
resourceName - Name of template or content resource
Returns:
class name of loader than can provide it
