(xmllib.apl) HTTP request supports HTTPS?

Post by Dave Rabelink » 13 Apr 2017, 06:52

I could not find it in the documentation (but that is obviously not an up-2-date resource).

I can recall that in "some" TD version, Gupta added HTTPS support using the class HTTPRequest, located in xmllib.apl.
But I could be totally mistaken about this.

So, does anyone know if HTTPRequest class supports it or not?
(and if so, from which TD version it is supported?)

I may have found something for you, Dave :) I still have copies of all the old SalesForce issues that I was the T.S. engineer for, and I found an issue from 2012:

Folder title: 21658 - v6. XML-WEB SVCS question re HTTPS
contents of that folder: the PDF attached. Starting on pg. 11 is a section on HTTP & HTTPS is mentioned.

It looks like a customer opened this SF issue, I picked it up and my response/answer to the issue was to provide the attached PDF file. Maybe it will be of use to you (?)

Hi Jeff,
on page 13 there is a clear statement:
Secure HTTPS using SSL and certificates
Currently the HTTREQUEST has no option to connect using secure HTTPS.

Has anyone used some other way to make https-requests from TD?

Use the Microsoft XML library (ActiveX/COM).

Use ActiveX Wizard from TD, locate type library Microsoft XML, v6.0 and generate the TD library.
There you will find these classes:

COM Proxy Class: MSXML2_ServerXMLHTTP60
COM Proxy Class: MSXML2_XMLHTTP60

See MSDN for extensive documentation how to use this.
(It resembles the way you use XMLLib.apl, but has all the features)
