How to retrieve collaboration room by name?

I wonder how to retrieve a collaboration room by name - not by id.

The collaboration Room API mentiones two methods of IRooms:

getRoom(java.lang.String roomId)

and

getRoomFromRID(java.lang.String roomRID)

where roomRID seems to mean the RID to the room's structure folder which again contains the roomId.

Any change to get an Room by it's clear name?

Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance

Ingo

    Hi Ingo,

    I think the problem with such method would be its ambiguousness. I believe more than one room can have the same room name, and therefore this parameter can not play a role of the primary key. You can however write your own method, which would retrieve all room names with their respective IDs and then return IRoom(s) matching the room name supplied.

    regards,
