RFT/RPT adapter for RQM should be able to support shared resources in repositories

When running RFT test scrips from RQM and the RFT test scripts were at a shared location like CCM, the RFT tests would NOT be executed and there was a "projectnotfound" in RFT adapter console.

In the user's case, the RFT scripts were shared at CCM, so the RFT resource path was a URL:. https:\\\ccm|yyyy Repository Workspace|Software Component Library System|ccl/rft/Smart1/resources/DatastoreDefinition.rftdsd,0

In RFT adapter log, we found the path became:
https:\\\ccm|yyyy Repository Workspace|Software Component Library System|ccl\rft\Smart1\resources\DatastoreDefinition.rftdsd,0

In the URL, slash became backslash, this was the direct reason of RFT test execution failure in RFT adapter.
