Web service maintenance

Web service maintenance involves the following tasks:

  • Creating or altering web services   Create or alter web services to provide web applications supporting a web browser interface and provide data interchange over the web using REST and SOAP methodologies. For an example of general HTTP web service creation, see Quick start to using SQL Anywhere as an HTTP web server.

  • Dropping web services   Dropping a web service causes the subsequent requests made for that service to return a 404 Not Found HTTP status message. All unresolved requests, intended or unintended, are processed if a root web service exists.

  • Commenting on web services   Commenting is optional and allows you to provide documentation for your web services.

  • Creating and customizing a root web service   You can create a root web service to handle HTTP requests that do not match any other web service requests.

  • Enabling and disabling web services   A disabled web service returns a 404 Not Found HTTP status message. The METHOD clause specifies the HTTP methods that can be called for a particular web service. See CREATE SERVICE statement [HTTP web service].
