PRODUCT: 4D | VERSION: 2003.3 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: May 6, 2004

4th Dimension 2003 and later support offering methods as Web Services. When published as Web Services, methods receive and respond to SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) messages through the native 4th Dimension Web server. SOAP requests should always include the name of the requested method and may also include the name of the Web Service. Reading method and Web Service names can be useful or necessary for developers writing security, logging, or other custom functionality. This technical note explains the behavior and limits of 4th Dimension's native Get Soap info function and describes custom code that extracts values from the SoapAction HTTP header, if available.
