Methods Details

addFile(parameterName, jsFile)

Add a file to the post; it will try to get the correct mime type from the file name or the first bytes.

If you add a single file then this will be a single file (so not a multi-part) post. If you want/need multi-part
then you have to either add multiple files or both a file and one or more parameters using addParameter(...).

Parameters

String parameterName ;
Object jsFile ;

Add a file to the post with a given mime type; could also be used to force the default 'application/octet-stream' on it,

Parameters

String parameterName ;
Object jsFile ;
String mimeType The mime type that must be used could be the real default ('application/octet-stream') if the files one (by name or by its first bytes) is not good.

executeAsyncRequest(username, password, workstation, domain, successCallbackMethod, errorCallbackMethod)

Execute the request method asynchronous. Success callback method will be called when response is received.
Response is sent as parameter in callback.
This Response can be a response with a different status code then just 200, it could also be 500, which is still a valid response from the server, this won't go into the error callback.
So you need to test the Reponse.getStatusCode() for that to know if everything did go OK.
If no response is received (request errors out), the errorCallbackMethod is called with exception message as parameter.

Parameters

String username the user name
String password the password
String workstation The workstation the authentication request is originating from.
String domain The domain to authenticate within.
Function successCallbackMethod callbackMethod to be called after response is received
Function errorCallbackMethod callbackMethod to be called if request errors out

executeAsyncRequest(username, password, workstation, domain, successCallbackMethod, errorCallbackMethod, callbackExtraArgs)

Execute the request method asynchronous using windows authentication.
Success callback method will be called when response is received. Response is sent as parameter in callback followed by any 'callbackExtraArgs' that were given.
This Response can be a response with a different status code then just 200, it could also be 500, which is still a valid response from the server, this won't go into the error callback.
So you need to test the Reponse.getStatusCode() for that to know if everything did go OK.
If no response is received (request errors out, network errors), the errorCallbackMethod is called with exception message as parameter followed by any 'callbackExtraArgs' that were given.

Parameters

String username the user name
String password the password
String workstation The workstation the authentication request is originating from.
String domain The domain to authenticate within.
Function successCallbackMethod callbackMethod to be called after response is received

forceMultipart(forceMultipart)

Force this request to prepare a "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" formatted message
even if only one file or only a number of parameter were added to it.

It is useful because some servers require this (they only support multipart - even if you don't need to send multiple things).
Before Servoy 2021.03 you could force it to send multipart by adding a dummy parameter together with a single file (or the other way around) - if the server didn't object to that dummy content...

Default value: false. (if you only add one file or only parameters it will not generate a multipart request)

Parameters

Boolean forceMultipart if true, this request will send a multipart/form-data message even if you only add one file or only parameters. If false (default) it will send multipart only in case of multiple files or one file plus at least one parameter.
