Did I mention that the Lansa documentation is incomplete?
Problem: Create a simple server module to accept a bit of data and simply reply with a string. Let that data be set with querystring parameters.
If I wanted to send the data as parameters in a POST request I would just do this:
POST to http://[DOMAIN/BASEPATH]/w=[WEBROUTINE]&r=[SRVROUTINE]&vlweb=1&part=[PARTITION]&lang=[LANGUAGE]
with, for instance,
But if the client expects to be able to send the data as part of the querystring, in a GET request, I need to do this:
GET to http://[DOMAIN/BASEPATH]/w=[WEBROUTINE]&r=[SRVROUTINE]&vlweb=1&part=[PARTITION]&lang=[LANGUAGE]&f(FIELD1)=DATA1&f(FIELD2)=DATA2
I could not find that f(…) trick, putting the parameters inside the parentheses, in the documentation but a very lucky search on the forum helped me.
My sample server module looks like this:
Begin_Com Role(*EXTENDS #PRIM_SRVM) Define Field(#PROC_OUTPUT) Type(*string) Length(65535) Srvroutine Name(DATA) Response(#RESPONSE) Field_Map For(*INPUT) Field(#FIELD1) Field_Map For(*INPUT) Field(#FIELD2) * do something with FIELD1 and FIELD2 here #PROC_OUTPUT := "Done" #RESPONSE.ContentString := #PROC_OUTPUT Endroutine End_Com
