RE: Web-to-i Communications questions



fixed

Thanks Charles.
I indicated in the original post that the 6 pdfs would be 500 k each. Correct that to 500 k total. if embedded in the response, would 500 k be big enough to be concerned about?

Yes there would be risks just passing the URL for the PDFs back.

You could create a temporary copy somewhere else, and pass back that
URL.
Or you could embed the PDF in your response.

As for th PDFs, it would be probably be better if you sent back in
your XML URLs for the PDF files that you are creating (on the fly
I'm
guessing) so the client can simply make another request to the
server and have them served up. No need for you to "send" them in
your response unless you want to put them inside of your XML data.

The PDFs are created as part of the monthly bill generation. They're
in the IFS ready to pass to the client. Are you suggesting that the
customer's browser would then access the pdf on the IFS through a
URL?
If so, are there risks that the browser could then access other
files?
