HTTP Header Variables (LANSA Web Server Extension)

For use with:

Each request by a browser to the Web Server sends a set of HTTP Header Variables to the Web Server. HTTP Header Variable support in LANSA Web allows you to forward the content of these HTTP Header Variables to the Data/Application Server in the form of function parameters (FUNCPARMS).

If you specify HTTP Header Variables, then these HTTP Header Variables are sent to the Data/Application Server for each incoming request. You should only define Http Header Variables if you really want access to the content of the specified HTTP Header Variables within your Web Application.

If an HTTP request received by the Web Server does not contain the HTTP Header Variable you specified, then the Default Value specified together with the HTTP Header Variable will be sent to the Data/Application Server instead.

To specify HTTP Header Variables, select the Tools menu and choose the HTTP Header Variables command. The HTTP Header Variables dialog box is displayed.

 

The HTTP Header Variables dialog box displays a list of HTTP Header Variables already configured for LANSA Web.
