Web Services

In the first article I started discussing RESTForms - REST API for your persistent classes. We talked about basic features, now, I'd like to discuss advanced features - mainly queries capabilites:

  • Basic queries
  • Query arguments
  • Custom queries

Queries

Queries allow getting slices of data, based on arbitrary criteria. There are two query types in RESTForms:

  • Basic queries work for all RESTForms classes once defined and they differ only by the field list
  • Custom queries work only for the classes in which they are specified and available, but the developer has full access to query text

I'm using %SOAP.WebRequest to send SOAP requests:

  1. Populate %SOAP.WebRequest object (by setting Request and HeadersOut properties)
  2. Call SendSOAPBody method to send request

Currently the XML I send looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'>
  <SOAP-ENV:Header>
<SomeCustomHeader/>  </SOAP-ENV:Header>
  <SOAP-ENV:Body><SomeCustomBody/></SOAP-ENV:Body>
</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

However, I want XML to be generated differently:

  • No new lines
  • No whitespaces between <SomeCustomHeader/> and </SOAP-ENV:Header>

 

How can I tweak XML generation to achieve that?

In this article I'll cover testing and debugging Caché web applications (mainly REST) with external tools. Second part covers Caché tools.

You wrote server-side code and want to test it from a client or already have a web application and it doesn't work. Here comes debugging. In this article I'll go from the easiest to use tools (browser) to the most comprehensive (packet analyzer), but first let's talk a little about most common errors and how they can be resolved.
