47919Re: Executing Java/C# server method from svg
- Mar 1, 2005Sounds like it would be nice to use getURL and postURL in my
ECMAScript. It says that these will allow you to retrieve data from a
server using a simple HTTP GET or post data to the server using an
HTTP POST. But how do I use these to communicate with a C#/Java app
(that accesses the database) that is running separately on the web
server machine? Or can I?
I'm a little confused as to how to do this and I couldn't really find
any simple examples from the links below. I'm thinking that there
will be a method call in the C#/Java app that will return the
results. Does anyone have a simple example or step-by-step
instructions on how to do this in plain English?
Or, do I need to use sockets?
Are either of these methods restrictive to certain browsers?
Thanks for your help. I am new to alot of this.
