Performs the HTTP request.




The doRequest() method performs the HTTP request.

Supported methods are GET, PUT, POST, HEAD, DELETE, OPTIONS, TRACE, and PATCH


For POST, PUT, and PATCH requests, the body will be empty.

This HTTP request method is non-blocking. It returns immediately after the call. Use the com.HttpRequest.getResponse method, to perform a synchronous HTTP request, suspending the program flow until the response returns from the server. If the program must keep going, use the com.HttpRequest.getAsyncResponse method, to check if a response is available.

In case of error, the method throws an exception and sets the status variable. Depending on the error, a human-readable description of the problem is available in the sqlca.sqlerrm register. See Error handling in GWS calls (status).

The int_flag variable is checked during GWS API call to handle program interruptions, for more details, see Interruption handling in GWS calls (int_flag)
