Hi Stefan
We had te same problem happen to us a couple of years ago
The way we circumvented it was to save the payload to a file in the ifs (the same program is used to process either XML or JSON)
This same program then reads that ifs file
Depending upon the first character of the string decides if its XML or JSON
For example
when %subst(%trim(RtvData): 1: 1) = '{';
JSON_string = *on;
when %subst(%trim(RtvData): 1: 1) = '[';
JSON_string = *on;
when %subst(%trim(RtvData): 1: 1) = '<';
XML_string = *on;

Depending upon what is set – the data is processed by the appropriate program

Hope this helps
Contact me if you need any further help

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Apache Http/Https reverse proxy based on content?


V7R4 soon to be V7R5.

A customer of mine has a bunch of Apache http-server instances running that are providing XML-data based on XML-requests from the outside world.

Now they want to serve json requests/responses as well from another set of Apache server instances.

Preferably they would like to use the existing external endpoints and route the incoming requests to different apache instances based on content type.

All incoming requests points at service.company.com

<me thinking out loud> If content ( payload ) is xml forward to xml.company.com

If content ( payload ) is json forward to json.company.com

I’ve been looking at ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse but that seems to route based on endpoint hostname only.

Is anything like this possible?

All the best
