      Description

      We need a TinyUrl like system whereby a tool can generate a link to something which might be horrendously long (ie those off the toolstate- kind where many parameters are needed to preserve state), call a method which creates a tinyurl link and returns it instead.

      This link could then be sent in emails easily. When clicked it would be translated back to it's original form and passed to the portal or similar.

      something like

          I believe this differs from the way EntityBroker works yes?
