HTTPAPI does all the heavy lifting when consuming web services. Brad's GETURI does a similar job.

Generally much easier to use a tool built for the job than rolling your own.

Thanks Jon, I should have known about this before starting. I use YAJL and
QTMHGETENV. I'm not sure what HTTPAPI would have given me but I'll need to
find the time to read about it.

Well I use Scott's HTTPAPI and the on/off capability provided by logging
gives me the data and the rest of the info I need.

Hi,



At the moment, during testing, each time my CGI programme receives JSON
data, I'm saving it to the IFS.


As I won't need to keep the JSON data once the application is deployed,
what
would be the best way to dynamically turn on and off the save function of
the program in case it were needed? Seems to me there are many ways of
doing it. I could configure an environment variable, an URL, change a
data
area, etc. What do you people do ?




Thanks !
