Subject RE: using curl during an http transaction
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 16:57:15 GMT
I worked with Erik on this, and we did get it working eventually.  It was quite difficult
to get this working as there aren't any good examples, but we pieced together what we could
based on the InkAPITest class and the example protocol plugin that uses TSNetConnect, which
is somewhat similar.  

I'm a bit swamped right now, but when I have a minute I'll post a response to this with some
helpful tips, gotchas, etc.

Hi Erik, did you ever get this TSHttpConnect call working?
I too am looking for some good examples to call a seperate HTTP service while processing a
request to determine how to handle it.
thanks very much,

building a plugin to do OAuth 2.  I'm looking to make a call to a separate
(REST) service to do the OAuth token validation.  


Does anyone
have experience with using something like curl or vconnections, etc. to make a
separate http request during an http transaction?  


You want to use the appropriate APIs that we provide to perform HTTP requests,
e.g. TSNetConnect() or TSHttpConnect().
