The doFormEncodedRequest() method performs a request with an "application/x-www-form-urlencoded forms" encoded query.

Supported methods are GET and POST.

The query string is a list of name/value pairs separated by an ampersand (&). For example:

If you need to URL-encode the separator characters & and =, double them as following: na&&me=va==lue.

If the utf8 parameter is TRUE, the query string is encoded in UTF-8 as specified in XForms1.0, otherwise in ASCII as specified in HTML4.

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)
