URLs without UserName and Password please


With last plugin release we enabled the option for CURL to disallow you passing user name and password. As URLs are sent to proxy and may be logged at the web servers, we prefer to not include credentials in the URL. And if you use the email address for user name, the name in the URL never worked.

So for the future, please separate them and put the credentials in the relevant options:

In FileMaker:

Set Variable [ $curl ; Value: MBS("CURL.New") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("CURL.SetOptionURL"; $curl; $URL) ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("CURL.SetOptionUsername"; $curl; "xxx") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("CURL.SetOptionPassword"; $curl; "yyy") ]

In Xojo:

dim curl as new CURLSMBS
curl.OptionURL = URL
curl.OptionUserName = "xxx"
curl.OptionPassword = "yyy"

If you still use URLs with username and password, please move to passing them with the username and password properties.

If you really can't change your solution, you can still use CURL.SetOptionDisallowUserNameInURL (FileMaker) and OptionDisallowUserNameInURL property in CURLSMBS/CURLNMBS and CURLMBS classes (Xojo) to enable username and password in URLs.

Call stored procedures with output parameters


As you know MBS Xojo SQL Plugin can execute stored procedures. For that you normally just pass the name of the stored procedure instead of a SQL command. The plugin than queries the details for the stored procedure like the input and output parameters. You can set input parameters and call execute. After you got all the result sets read, the last data package from the server brings the return code and the output parameter values. Check this sample code: (more)
