Version 2.0 Released April 24, 2006
New in V2.0: now supports secure HTTPS connections! Now supports downloading databases & binary files!
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. It can
also be used to implement your own TCP/IP socket protocol instead of
HTTP, with "raw" socket read and write functions.
SF-HTTP relies on the HTTPLib2 shared library from Tektonica BVBA in
Belgium. This shared library is embedded into the SF-HTTP extension, and
does not require the installation of a separate prc file.
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. Treo600), or 802.11 wireless LAN
(eg. Tungsten C). It uses the standard HTTP protocol to communicate
with most common HTTP servers.
NOTE: SF-HTTP is not a web browser! It does not interpret or
display HTML formatting at all. It is an HTTP client for
transferring data back and forth to a server over TCP/IP using the HTTP
or secure HTTPS protocol.
It supports HTTP Basic Authentication (username
SF-HTTP 2.0 now supports the transfer of text data and binary files including PalmOS prc/pdb databases!
