The InboundXMLBind handler allows XML requests to be received and XML responses to be sent.
When the RECEIVE command of this content handler is executed the following steps occur:
If there is no content, then an OK status is returned.
The handler checks that the content type belongs to the XML group of content types, if it does not support the content type, then an error is returned to the program. Use the CONTENT keyword to override this check and to allow the handler to receive the data, it is assumed the data is XML.
The handler parses the XML content into a DOM object ready for the BIND command.
When the SEND command of this content handler is executed the following steps occur:
The handler determines if this Unicode data needs to be archived.
The handler uses the value of the CONTENT keyword to determine the value of the HTTP protocol content-type.
The handler creates a HTTP response to return to the remote client.
The optional UAFILE and UAPATH keywords are available to inform the remote client program of a recommended path and filename for the content. LANSA Integrator UserAgent will add these file and path names to the save popup menu on the response panel.
The service property inbound.xml.default.contenttype can be used to set the default content type.
