This folder contains examples of creating entity writer objects, that are responsible for reading HTTP message bodies and creating 'strongly typed' objects. So a HTTP message with a Content-Type of multipart/form-data uses a MultipartEntityWriter to create an instance of a OpenEdge.Net.MultipartEntity class based on a character or memptr representation.

There may be cases where you have custom content types or the shipped writers are buggy. In this case, you can create a new, or override an existing, EntityWriter. These must be instances of OpenEdge.Net.HTTP.Filter.Payload.MessageWriter.

Registering writers

In your code, add the entity writer to the appropriate registry. This only needs to be done once per session, so it's recommended to do this duriung session startup.

using OpenEdge.Net.HTTP.Filter.Writer.EntityWriterRegistry.
using Example.Writer.ExtendedJsonEntityWriter.

// The HTTP client (and certain webhandlers) will now use the ExtendedJsonEntityWriter 
// for all JSON content
                                  get-class(ExtendedJsonEntityWriter) ).

The Registry property is an instance of the OpenEdge.Core.Util.BuilderRegistry type, which is a map of characters (keys) and Progress.Lang.Class instances (values). There are Get, Put, Remove and Clear methods, as well Has and a Size property for registry inspection.
