QCResource Object
Represents a file or folder stored in the Quality Center repository.

A resource is either a folder or a file stored in the project database. A resource is any material used by another entity, for example, an object repository or function library. 

A resource can have a "used by" relation to any number of other entities. For example, several Tests may use the same resources.

Where a resource must be used with other resources or other entities, the dependency can be modeled with a "uses" relation.

The relations are modeled with an AssetRelation Object. Where this resource has a "uses" relation to another entity, create the relation with this relation's factory, ISupportAssetRelations.AssetRelationFactory.

The QCResource object handles one resource. The object has no knowledge of the type of the resource or how it is used.

Get a reference from QCResourceFactory.

For version control, use the IVersionedEntity interface.
