Reference Type: Supported, Category: Toolkit—HTTP Client Helper, Integration Agreement: 5554
The Kernel Toolkit Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Client Helper software release adds a new tool in a set of Infrastructure software tools that developers can use. HTTP is a fast and reliable way for an application to collect data from another source. Kernel Toolkit Patch XT*7.3*123 allows VistA to tap into this information and retrieve Web data.
This code was developed by another VistA application that had a pressing need for this capability. The Kernel Toolkit development team is providing it as generic tool so that other developers may use its functionality for their needs. For example:
This extrinsic function parses a URL using the HTTP Client Helper 1.0
software. This API was introduced with Kernel Toolkit Patch XT*7.3*123.
NOTE: XTHC* routines are part of the HTTP Client Helper application for developers.
