How to browse a SQL Anywhere HTTP web server

Available URL names are defined by how your web services are named and designed. Each web service provides its own set of web content. This content is typically generated by custom functions and procedures in your database, but content can also be generated with a URL that specifies a SQL statement. Alternatively, or in conjunction, you can define the root web service, which processes all HTTP requests that are not processed by a dedicated service. The root web service would typically inspect the request URL and headers to determine how to process the request.

URLs uniquely specify resources such as html content available through HTTP or secured HTTPS requests. This section explains how to format the URL syntax in your web browser so that you can access the web services defined on your SQL Anywhere HTTP web server.


The information in this section applies to HTTP web servers that use general HTTP web service types, such as RAW, XML, and HTML, and DISH services. You cannot use a browser to issue SOAP requests. JSON services return result sets for consumption by web service applications using AJAX.
