Registers the function to be executed just before the SOAP response is forwarded to the client.


   function STRING )
  1. function has the name of a program function.


The registerOutputRequestHandler() method registers a function to be called just after the SOAP engine has processed the request and before the SOAP response is forwarded to the client.

The output callback function must be defined with a unique parameter of type xml.DomDocument, and must return the reference to this object:
FUNCTION myRequestOutputHandler( out )
    DEFINE out xml.DomDocument
    RETURN out

The output callback function typically modifies the content of the SOAP output request DOM document object passed as parameter.

If NULL was returned from the input callback function, the output callback function will be called with the default SOAP fault node.

When WS-Addressing is enabled, and the server side callback is triggered, the SOAP engine has already created the SOAP:Header node with the correct WS-Addressing entries. If other headers need to be added (for WS-Security for instance), it is recommended to add them as child nodes of the existing SOAP header node, instead of creating a new header node. Otherwise, you may get two SOAP headers in the same response, which is not allowed.

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).
