Hello Christian,

Thanks for the reply.

This code is a part of grokcore.view-2.8. Moreover, from the following
        >>> from zope.publisher.browser import applySkin
        >>> request = TestRequest()
        >>> applySkin(request, URLTestingSkin)
        >>> # Shifting names normally happens during URL traversal.
        >>> request._traversed_names = ['++skin++urltesting']
        >>> request.shiftNameToApplication()
        >>> index_view = component.getMultiAdapter((manfred, request),
        >>> index_view.url()
And seeing the code from grokcore/view/util.py we find that the url is
manually manipulated with '++skin++' and it will not work for RESTLayer.
So, taking clue from this I too manipulated the url path with '++rest++'
string manually (for the time being).

Is there any other better way of doing this?
