Content Providers

TECH TIP: WebTier Content Providers

The WebTier architecture dispatches WebRequests to appropriate ContentProviders. ContentProviders are responsible for processing a request and generating a response.

Requests sent from a web browser to the webtier must include a content parameter. For example:

In your WebTier application you can check this by checking TrsWebRequest.ContentType (or by checking TrsWebRequest.ContentParameters[‘content’]). Either syntax checks the same parameter.
