I want to get a specific publication details including metadata using TOM.NET API by just passing the Title of the publication? Could you help me with the best way (which method to use etc.)?

We are using Tridion 2013 SP1. Thanks, Kevin

    Use a WebDAV url. "/WebDAV/publication%20name" - escape spaces and dots.

As Nuno mentioned in the comment, but I'll steal his points by making it an answer ;o). In Template code you can use the GetObject method directly from the Engine object available in a Template:

Publication pub = (Publication)engine.GetObject("/WebDAV/Publication%20Name");

If your code is used in an Event Handler, you can use the GetObject method from the Session object, which you get from the subject (item the event is triggered on):

Publication pub = (Publication)subject.Session.GetObject("/WebDAV/Publication%20Name");
