SF-HTTP for PalmOS
The PalmDataPro SF-HTTP extension for PalmOS
has been updated to version 2.0 with several significant enhancements:
It supports SSL-secured connections using the HTTPS protocol in
addition to standard HTTP. Secure HTTPS is available on devices
running PalmOS 5.2 or higher (SSL support was added by PalmSource
in PalmOS 5.2).
- It supports the downloading of binary files including Palm PRC/PDB
databases as well as any native PC file, over HTTP and HTTPS.
- It adds support for the HTTP PUT, DELETE, and HEAD commands.
SF-HTTP is an SFX plugin that allows SatForms for PalmOS applications to
transfer data to and from an HTTP server, over a TCP/IP connection. It
implements an HTTP client capable of GET and POST functions.
SF-HTTP enables you to send and receive data via HTTP over any TCP/IP
connection on the Palm device, such as a dialup modem (eg. PalmModem on
an M505), CDMA/GPRS connection (eg. Treo650), or 802.11 wireless LAN
(eg. LifeDrive or T|X) It uses the standard HTTP/HTPS protocol to communicate with
most common HTTP/HTTPS servers.
