classmethod OnPage() as %Status
The OnPage() is called by the CSP dispatcher to generate the page content. For XMLSQL, we loop across the ResultSet and output the contents as XML.
classmethod OnPostHTTP()
The OnPostHTTP() is called by the CSP dispatcher after the page content has been sent. We use it here to clean up the ResultSet
classmethod OnPreHTTP() as %Boolean
The OnPreHTTP() is called by the CSP dispatcher before the HTTP headers have been sent. Here, we prepare the Dynamic SQL query and set the content type to text/xml.
classmethod PreProcessSQL(sql As %String, ByRef args As %String, mode As %Integer, ByRef xmlmode As %String) as %String
Process the XML SQL extras from the SQL statement. The mode is as follows:

  • 0 - Default XML-SQL mode
  • 1 - Oracle XML-SQL mode
