Sets an HTTP header for the request.


   name STRING,
   value STRING )
  1. name defines the HTTP header name.
  2. value defines the HTTP header value.


The setHeader() method defines an HTTP header with a name and value for the request.

If a header exists with the same name, it is replaced with the new value.

Setting a header after the body has been sent, or if a streaming operation has been started, will not take effect. It will only be set when a new request is reissued.

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).
