Class HttpParameterMap
Object
dw.web.HttpParameterMap
A map of HTTP parameters.
Properties
parameterCount  :  Number  (Read Only)
The number of paramters in this http parameter map.
parameterNames  :  Set  (Read Only)
A collection of all parameter names.
requestBodyAsString  :  String  (Read Only)
The HTTP request body as string (e.g. useful for XML posts). A body is only returned if the request is a POST or PUT request and was not send with "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" encoding. If the request was send with that encoding it is interpreted as form data and the body will be empty.
Constructor Summary
This class does not have a constructor, so you cannot create it directly.
Method Summary
get(name : Object) : HttpParameter
Returns the http parameter for the given key or an empty http parameter, if no parameter is defined for that key.
getParameterCount() : Number
Returns the number of paramters in this http parameter map.
getParameterMap(prefix : String) : HttpParameterMap
Returns a sub-map containing all parameters that start with the given prefix.
getParameterNames() : Set
Returns a collection of all parameter names.
getRequestBodyAsString() : String
Returns the HTTP request body as string (e.g.
isParameterSubmitted(key : String) : boolean
Identifies if the parameter has been submitted.
processMultipart(callback : Function) : LinkedHashMap
This method can be called to process a form submission for an HTML form with encoding type "multipart/form-data".

Method Detail
get
get(name : Object) : HttpParameter
Returns the http parameter for the given key or an empty http parameter, if no parameter is defined for that key. An empty parameter returns false for the method isDefined().
Parameters:
name - the key whose associated http parameter is to be returned.
Returns:
the http parameter or an empty http parameter.

getParameterCount
getParameterCount() : Number
Returns the number of paramters in this http parameter map.
Returns:
the number parameters.

getParameterMap
getParameterMap(prefix : String) : HttpParameterMap
Returns a sub-map containing all parameters that start with the given prefix. The prefix will be removed from the parameter names in the returned sub-map. For example with the parameters "pre_P1" and "pre_p2" a call with "pre_" as parameter will return a HttpParameterMap containing "P1" and "P2".
Parameters:
prefix - the prefix to use when creating the sub-map.
Returns:
the sub-map containing the target parameters.

getParameterNames
getParameterNames() : Set
Returns a collection of all parameter names.
Returns:
a set of all parameter names

getRequestBodyAsString
getRequestBodyAsString() : String
Returns the HTTP request body as string (e.g. useful for XML posts). A body is only returned if the request is a POST or PUT request and was not send with "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" encoding. If the request was send with that encoding it is interpreted as form data and the body will be empty.
Returns:
the http request body

isParameterSubmitted
isParameterSubmitted(key : String) : boolean
Identifies if the parameter has been submitted.
Parameters:
key - the parameter to check.
Returns:
true if the parameter has been submitted, false otherwise.

processMultipart
processMultipart(callback : Function) : LinkedHashMap
This method can be called to process a form submission for an HTML form with encoding type "multipart/form-data". Such a form can have a mixture of "regular" HTML form fields and also file uploads.

Form fields are available via get(Object) without calling this method. Uploaded files still need to be processed via the passed callback function.

This callback function is called for each file upload part in the request. The parameters are the field name, the content type and the original file name. The function can return either a null, which means that the upload of this part should be skipped, or return a dw.io.File instance. If the file is an existing directory the system will automatically generate a unique file name. If the file is not an existing directory the uploaded content will be directly stored into that file. An existing file with the same name will be deleted. If the file can't be deleted for whatever reason, the upload is stored with a generated unique file name in the indicated directory.

An automatically generated file name consists of the the prefix "upload", a time stamp, a unique id and the extension tmp. For example: "upload_20070114221535_bc7H1aOadI9qYaaacovPd3lqna.tmp".


 var params : HttpParameterMap = pdict.CurrentHttpParameterMap;

 // Get the file name from the first field. This is works because the
 // parameter map is updated before the file part is parsed.
 var files : LinkedHashMap = params.processMultipart( (function( field, ct, oname ){
     return new File( File.IMPEX + "/" + params.firstField );
 }) );
 
Parameters:
callback - a callback function, which takes the field name, content type and original file name as input
Returns:
a LinkedHashMap where the keys are the actual file names and the values are references to the File, or null if this is not a multipart request
