So, I've been fighting the proc manual for quite some time.... Got a Uniface component being called by a .NET application so they want the content-type set to application/json on the way back. Simple I thought... Manual states $webinfo("HTTPRESPONSEHEADERS") = "content-type=application/json GOLD ; accept:application/json" Negative - content-type remains "text/html" and accept is nowhere to be seen. Now try: putitem/id $webinfo("HTTPRESPONSEHEADERS"), "Accept", "application/json" Hey presto, "accept:application/json" appears. Let's add putitem/id $webinfo("HTTPRESPONSEHEADERS"), "content-type", "application/json" Frown - the returned json (from $webinfo("OUTPUT") gets corrupted, but "content-type:application/json" appears in the header... Has anyone seen this before? If so, how did you get around it? Knut


  1. Hi Knut, perhaps it's just a typo as "accept:application/json" should be a key-value pair written as "accept=application/json"?

  2. Hi Knut, Think your line doesn't specify the accept datatype what about: $webinfo(“HTTPRESPONSEHEADERS”) = “content-type=application/json GOLD ; accept=application/json” instead of the: ;$webinfo(“HTTPRESPONSEHEADERS”) = “content-type=application/json GOLD ; accept:application/json” As the helpfile reads:

    It contains an associative list of request parameters present in the request URL: ParameterName1 = Value1 GOLD; ParameterName2 = Value2...

  3. Hi Uli, Negative, no matter which way I specify it I get the buffer overrun. Never mind, I've convinced the .NET developer to parse it separately as there are only 3 items in the JSON. Knut

  4. Negative... This line : $webinfo("HTTPRESPONSEHEADERS") = "content-type=application/json" causes the 1st two characters of $webinfo("OUTPUT") to be overwritten. Instead of {" there some sort of control character... ASCII value of 1.... Knut

  5. Hi Knut, I guess this is related to your other post (RESTful service in Uniface)? Thanks, Daniel

  6. Hi Daniel, It would appear that would be the case.... Time to get on with the upgrade! Regards, Knut
