If you want to send large quantities of data, we recommend that you compress it first to keep the transports as small as possible.
The example below shows how you might use data compression.
DATA: html_body TYPE string. … IF compress NE space. CALL METHOD server->response->set_header_field( name = 'Content-Type' value = 'text/html' ). * * is compression supported and does client support gzip * compression technique * CALL METHOD server->set_compression EXPORTING options = if_http_server=>co_compress_in_all_cases EXCEPTIONS compression_not_possible = 1 OTHERS = 2. IF sy-subrc <> 0. CONCATENATE '<html>' '<body>' 'Compress nicht möglich '(001) '</br>' '</body>' '</html>' INTO html_body. ELSE. CONCATENATE '<html>' '<body>' 'Compress erfolgreich '(001) '</br>' '</body>' '</html>' INTO html_body. ENDIF. * * if compression could be activated the body will be transferred * as gzip compressed body * CALL METHOD server->response->set_cdata( data = html_body ). ENDIF.
