FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Deep Sky Technologies, Inc., Announces Release of HTTP Client Deux v1.0.1
Maintenance Release of 4th Dimension Component
Vero Beach, FL – Thursday, September 6th, 2001: Deep Sky
Technologies, Inc., today announced the full release of HTTP Client
Deux v1.0.1 for Macintosh and Windows. HTTP Client Deux is a 4th
Dimension component which provides a comprehensive set of HTTP and
HTTPS request methods for use throughout 4D based projects.
HTTP Client Deux provides many automation and management functions for
use in writing HTTP request and response processing code. It
automatically handles most of the common operations involved in
managing HTTP communications in 4D.
HTTP Client Deux works “on top” of TCP Deux, another 4D component
available from Deep Sky Technologies, Inc. TCP Deux provides
completely transparent operation with 4D Internet Commands v6.7.x,
Internet ToolKit v2.0.x, and Internet ToolKit v2.5.x; any of these
plugins can be used without any coding changes. The only exception to
this is for HTTPS requests to function properly you must be using a
valid copy of ITK Pro v2.5.x.
TCP Deux and HTTP Client Deux do require that the BASh 4D component be
installed for it to operate correctly. BASh is a 4D component
available for free from DSTi and it handles all of the core routines
needed to properly run TCP Deux and HTTP Client Deux.
With this update, it is now required that you are using at least TCP
Deux v1.0.1 or above. It is also recommended that you are using BASh
v1.6.0 or above, though this is not a requirement.
A full manual, explaining every call and feature available in HTTP
Client Deux, is included with the component.
Features in the HTTP Client Deux component
The functionality available in the HTTP Client Deux component include:
– Single method call for all common HTTP/HTTPS request;
– Support for GET, POST, and HEAD requests;

– Low level, fully customizable request interface;
– Transparent support for IC v6.7.x, ITK v2.0.x, and ITK v2.5.x;
– Full SSL support for HTTPS when using ITK v2.5.x.
The HTTP Client Deux component requires the BASh and TCP Deux
components be installed to operate properly. The TCP Deux component
is available directly from Deep Sky Technologies, Inc, and provides a
transparent TCP layer between 4D and TCP plugins. BASh is available
for free from Deep Sky Technologies, Inc., and provides essential
routines needed by all 4D programmers.
