This interface is implemented by the class CL_HTTP_UTILITY and provides general methods for processing HTTP data. These methods are not client- or server-specific.

 

The methods included in this interface represent general functions in the HTTP environment. They mainly offer HTTP-related string operations that significantly ease the handling of HTTP data, for example, creating and editing the URL string. The interface has its main focus in the follow-up processing of data in the application, after the data has been transferred with the HTTP protocol.

Integration

Some of the methods used are also implemented in other interfaces (such as IF_HTTP_SERVER, IF_HTTP_ENTITY). In the long term, all general HTTP tools should be collected into this interface.

Note Note

Use the IF_HTTP_UTILITY methods, even if the same methods are implemented in other interfaces.

End of the note.
