Windchill URL helpers

When working with customizations which make use of information from Windchill PDMLink it is sometimes helpful to be able to generate e.g. the URL to a detailed info page of an object by providing the objects internal ID.
Windchill provides several helpers:
URL Example: http://servername.com/Windchill/servlet/WindchillAuthGW/com.ptc.wvs.server.ui.ThumbnailHelper/#helperMethodName#
In the URL you can replace #helperMethodName#
When sending a request to this URL you get a new URL in return which points to the required object page. This is much easier since you don't have to do string processing to generate URLs.
