Other InterSystems %Net Tools
Here is a brief list of some other useful classes in %Net:
InterSystems IRIS provides a utility class, %Net.URLParserOpens in a new window, that you can use to parse URL strings into their component parts. This is useful, for example, when you are redirecting an HTTP request.
This class contains one class method, Parse(), that takes a string containing a URL value and returns, by reference, an array that contains the parts of the URL. For example:
Set url = "https://www.google.com/search?q=Java+site%3Adocs.intersystems.com&oq=Java+site%3Adocs.intersystems.com" Do ##class(%Net.URLParser).Parse(url,.components)
Upon return, components will contain an array of the parts of this URL:
|components("fragment")||null||The fragment (following the # character) for the URL|
|components("host")||www.google.com||The host requested by the URL|
|components("netloc")||www.google.com||The network address of the URL|
|components("params")||The URL parameters contained in the URL|
|components("path")||/search||The file path of the URL|
|components("query"||q=Java+site%3Adocs.intersystems.com&oq=Java+site%3Adocs.intersystems.com||The query string contained in the URL|
|components("scheme")||https||The transport scheme specified by this URL|
For more information, refer to the class documentation for %Net.URLParserOpens in a new window.
You can use %Net.CharsetOpens in a new window to represent MIME character sets within InterSystems IRIS and map these character sets to InterSystems IRIS locales. This class includes the following class methods:
GetDefaultCharset() returns the default character set for the current InterSystems IRIS locale,
GetTranslateTable() returns the name of the InterSystems IRIS translation table for a given input character set.
TranslateTableExists() indicates whether the translation table for the given character set has been loaded.
For method signatures, see the class documentation for %Net.CharsetOpens in a new window.
For more information on character sets and translation tables, see “System Classes for National Language Support” in Specialized System Tools and Utilities.
The %Net package provides many classes for authentication and security. For information, see the extensive class documentation.
