Consuming REST Service from OE

Posted by sam on 06-Jun-2013 09:46

Hello Everybody:

Version: OE 11.2

Starting with OE 11 , Progress has provided a feature to publish REST service. However there is no way to consume such Service from external app using OE Client.

is there a work around to perform this. Anybody having experience with this.

Thanks in advance.

If you can work with HTTP and not HTTPS you can do something

:READ-XML("FILE, "http://www...etc/?parameters")

on a TEMP-TABLE, DATASET or BUFFER. You could also do LOAD on a X-DOCUMENT handle.

But if you need HTTPS instead you are out of luck and need to search for a third party option. We use the wget command to invoke the query, then simply load the saved XML from disk

I tried do send in a request for this via our first line support but I never heard back from them. So anybody on a direct line with Progress might have better luck.
