Get SPWeb Object from the URL

PowerShell Snap-in for SharePoint 2010 offers Get-SPWeb cmdlet to get SPWeb Object directly from the given web URL. But when writing .Net code in C# (or in PowerShell with MOSS 2007) SharePoint object model doesn’t offer this mechanism.

However there is a Trick to get SPWeb Object from given URL: Get the SPWeb by calling SPSite.OpenWeb() Method.

Get SPWeb from Given URL: C# Code:

Using(SPSite site=new spsite(URL))
	using(SpWeb web=site.openweb())
		//Do something 

Same way, With MOSS 2007 PowerShell:

$webURL="" #Subsite
$site = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($WebURL) 
$web= $site.OpenWeb()
