WebWin32 provides a programmatic HTTP client interface, using the Win32 WinHttp API, available on Windows Server 2003, Windows XP SP1, and Windows 2000 SP3. It provides the following benefits:
- Https support, in addition to the normal http support
- Multi-threaded Omnis server performance – other Omnis code can execute in parallel, while an HTTP request is being sent to a server, and the response received
- Better control over the execution of the request e.g. timeouts can be specified for the different phases of HTTP request execution, various other WinHttp options are exposed
- Support for IPv6 (as WinHttp 5.1 supports this)
A working example and documentation are provided with the component. To enable the WebWin32 plug-in, you should purchase one development license per developer, whereas deployment is free of charge.
