Forum OpenACS Development: New HTTP client API
I want to notify that new HTTP client API has just been committed to 5-8 branch of OpenAcs.
It had been thought as a complete revision of old procs used for that purpose until now, as discussed in this thread: https://openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=4114386
Old methods, such as util_httppost, ad_httpget and similar had been deprecated, but will of course stay around indefinitely for backward compatibility.
New API is meant to be compatible with with tcl >= 8.5, Aolserver and Naviserver. On Naviserver it will use native http client capabilities, while on Aolserver it will fallback to a curl wrapper implementation.
Every feedback and suggestion will be welcome!
