Performs the HTTP request.




The doRequest() method performs the HTTP request.

Supported methods are GET, HEAD, POST, PUT and DELETE.

Note: For POST and PUT 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)
