Tizen Native API  5.5
Ecore URL Connection Functions

Utility functions that set up, use and shut down the Ecore URL Connection library.

These functions are a shortcut to make it easy to perform http requests (POST, GET, etc).

Brief usage: 1. Create an Ecore_Con_Url object with ecore_con_url_new(url); 2. Register to receive the ECORE_CON_EVENT_URL_COMPLETE event (and optionally the ECORE_CON_EVENT_URL_DATA and ECORE_CON_EVENT_URL_PROGRESS event to receive the response, e.g. for HTTP/FTP downloads) 3. Perform the operation with ecore_con_url_get(...);

Note that it is good to reuse Ecore_Con_Url objects wherever possible, but bear in mind that each one can only perform one operation at a time. You need to wait for the ECORE_CON_EVENT_URL_COMPLETE event before re-using or destroying the object.

If it's necessary to change the Ecore_Con_Url object url, use ecore_con_url_url_set().

Simple Usage 1 (HTTP GET):

   ecore_con_url_url_set(url_con, "http://www.google.com");
   ecore_con_url_get(url_con);

Simple usage 2 (HTTP POST):

   ecore_con_url_url_set(url_con, "http://www.example.com/post_handler.cgi");
   ecore_con_url_post(url_con, data, data_length, "multipart/form-data");

Simple Usage 3 (FTP download):

   fd = creat(filename, 0644)
   ecore_con_url_url_set(url_con, "ftp://ftp.example.com/pub/myfile");
   ecore_con_url_fd_set(url_con, fd);
   ecore_con_url_get(url_con);

Simple Usage 4 (FTP upload as ftp://ftp.example.com/file):

   ecore_con_url_url_set(url_con, "ftp://ftp.example.com");
   ecore_con_url_ftp_upload(url_con, "/tmp/file", "user", "pass", NULL);

Simple Usage 5 (FTP upload as ftp://ftp.example.com/dir/file):

   ecore_con_url_url_set(url_con, "ftp://ftp.example.com");
   ecore_con_url_ftp_upload(url_con, "/tmp/file", "user", "pass","dir");

Function Documentation

void ecore_con_url_additional_header_add ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
const char *  key,
const char *  value 
)

Adds an additional header to the request connection object.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object
keyHeader key
valueHeader value

Add an additional header (User-Agent, Content-Type, etc.) to the request connection object. This addition will be valid for only one ecore_con_url_get() or ecore_con_url_post() call.

Some functions like ecore_con_url_time() also add headers to the request.

See also:

ecore_con_url_post()
ecore_con_url_additional_headers_clear()
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Examples:
ecore_con_url_cookies_example.c, and ecore_con_url_headers_example.c.

Cleans additional headers.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object to clean additional headers.

Clean additional headers associated with a connection object (previously added with ecore_con_url_additional_header_add()).

See also:
ecore_con_url_additional_header_add()
ecore_con_url_get()
ecore_con_url_post()
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)

Clears currently loaded cookies.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.

The cleared cookies are removed and will not be sent in subsequent HTTP requests, nor will they be written to the cookiejar file set via ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set().

Note:
This function will initialize the cookie engine if it has not been initialized yet.
The cookie files set by ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add() aren't loaded immediately, just when the request is started. Thus, if you ask to clear the cookies, but has a file already set by that function, the cookies will then be loaded and you will have old cookies set. In order to don't have any old cookie set, you need to don't call ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add() ever on the url_con handler, and call this function to clear any cookie set by a previous request on this handler.

void ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
const char *const  file_name 
)

Adds a file to the list of files from which to load cookies.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.
file_nameName of the file that will be added to the list.

Files must contain cookies defined according to two possible formats:

Cookies will only be read from this file. If you want to save cookies to a file, use ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set(). Also notice that this function supports the both types of cookie file cited above, while ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set() will save only in the Netscape/Mozilla's format.

Please notice that the file will not be read immediately, but rather added to a list of files that will be loaded and parsed at a later time.

Note:
This function will initialize the cookie engine if it has not been initialized yet.
See also:
ecore_con_url_cookies_ignore_old_session_set()
ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set()
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Examples:
ecore_con_url_cookies_example.c.

Controls whether session cookies from previous sessions shall be loaded.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.
ignoreIf EINA_TRUE, ignore session cookies when loading cookies from files. If EINA_FALSE, all cookies will be loaded.

Session cookies are cookies with no expire date set, which usually means they are removed after the current session is closed.

By default, when Ecore_Con_Url loads cookies from a file, all cookies are loaded, including session cookies, which, most of the time, were supposed to be loaded and valid only for that session.

If ignore is set to EINA_TRUE, when Ecore_Con_Url loads cookies from the files passed to ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add(), session cookies will not be loaded.

See also:
ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add()
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Examples:
ecore_con_url_cookies_example.c.

Enables the cookie engine for subsequent HTTP requests.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.

After this function is called, cookies set by the server in HTTP responses will be parsed and stored, as well as sent back to the server in new HTTP requests.

Note:
Even though this function is called ecore_con_url_cookies_init(), there is no symmetrical shutdown operation.
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Examples:
ecore_con_url_cookies_example.c.
Eina_Bool ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
const char *const  cookiejar_file 
)

Sets the name of the file to which all current cookies will be written when either cookies are flushed or Ecore_Con is shut down.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.
cookiejar_fileFile to which the cookies will be written.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE is the file name has been set successfully, EINA_FALSE otherwise.

Cookies are written following Netscape/Mozilla's data format, also known as cookie-jar.

Cookies will only be saved to this file. If you need to read cookies from a file, use ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add() instead.

Note:
This function will initialize the cookie engine if it has not been initialized yet.
See also:
ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_write()
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Examples:
ecore_con_url_cookies_example.c.

Writes all current cookies to the cookie jar immediately.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.

A cookie-jar file must have been previously set by ecore_con_url_jar_file_set, otherwise nothing will be done.

Note:
This function will initialize the cookie engine if it has not been initialized yet.
See also:
ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set()
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Examples:
ecore_con_url_cookies_example.c.

Clears currently loaded session cookies.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.

Session cookies are cookies with no expire date set, which usually means they are removed after the current session is closed.

The cleared cookies are removed and will not be sent in subsequent HTTP requests, nor will they be written to the cookiejar file set via ecore_con_url_cookies_jar_file_set().

Note:
This function will initialize the cookie engine if it has not been initialized yet.
The cookie files set by ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add() aren't loaded immediately, just when the request is started. Thus, if you ask to clear the session cookies, but has a file already set by that function, the session cookies will then be loaded and you will have old cookies set. In order to don't have any old session cookie set, you need to don't call ecore_con_url_cookies_file_add() ever on the url_con handler, and call this function to clear any session cookie set by a previous request on this handler. An easier way to don't use old session cookies is by using the function ecore_con_url_cookies_ignore_old_session_set().

The proxy string may be prefixed with [protocol]:// since any such prefix will be ignored. The proxy's port number may optionally be specified with the separate option. If not specified, libcurl will default to using port 1080 for proxies.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object that will use the proxy.
proxyProxy string or NULL to disable
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE on error.

Eina_Bool ecore_con_url_proxy_username_set ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
const char *  username 
)

Sets zero terminated username to use for proxy.

If socks protocol is used for proxy, protocol should be socks5 and above.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object that will use the proxy.
usernameUsername string.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE on error.

Retrieves the number of bytes received.

Retrieve the number of bytes received on the last request of the given connection object.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object which the request was sent on.
Returns:
Number of bytes received on request.

Examples:
ecore_con_url_download_example.c.

Retrieves headers from last request sent.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object to retrieve response headers from.

Retrieve a list containing the response headers. This function should be used after an ECORE_CON_EVENT_URL_COMPLETE event (headers should normally be ready at that time).

Returns:
List of response headers. This list must not be modified by the user.

int ecore_con_url_shutdown ( void  )

Shuts down the Ecore_Con_Url library.

Returns:
Number of calls that still uses Ecore_Con_Url
Note:
This function doesn't call ecore_con_shutdown(). You still need to call it explicitly after calling this one.

int ecore_con_url_ssl_ca_set ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
const char *  ca_path 
)

Set a custom CA to trust for SSL/TLS connections.

Specify the path of a file (in PEM format) containing one or more CA certificate(s) to use for the validation of the server certificate.

This function can also disable CA validation if ca_path is NULL. However, the server certificate still needs to be valid for the connection to succeed (i.e., the certificate must concern the server the connection is made to).

Parameters:
url_conConnection object that will use the custom CA.
ca_pathPath to a CA certificate(s) file or NULL to disable CA validation.
Returns:
0 on success. When cURL is used, non-zero return values are equal to cURL error codes.

void ecore_con_url_ssl_verify_peer_set ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
Eina_Bool  verify 
)

Toggle libcurl's verify peer's certificate option.

If verify is EINA_TRUE, libcurl will verify the authenticity of the peer's certificate, otherwise it will not. Default behavior of libcurl is to check peer's certificate.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.
verifyWhether or not libcurl will check peer's certificate.
Since (EFL) :
1.1.0
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)

Gets the returned HTTP STATUS code.

This is used to, at any time, try to return the status code for a transmission.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object
Returns:
A valid HTTP STATUS code, or 0 on failure

void ecore_con_url_time ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
Ecore_Con_Url_Time  time_condition,
double  timestamp 
)

Sets whether HTTP requests should be conditional, dependent on modification time.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url to act upon.
time_conditionCondition to use for HTTP requests.
timestampTime since 1 Jan 1970 to use in the condition.

This function may set the header "If-Modified-Since" or "If-Unmodified-Since", depending on the value of time_condition, with the value timestamp.

void ecore_con_url_timeout_set ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
double  timeout 
)

Sets timeout in seconds.

The maximum time in seconds that you allow the ecore con url transfer operation to take. Normally, name lookups can take a considerable time and limiting operations to less than a few minutes risk aborting perfectly normal operations.

Parameters:
url_conConnection object that will use the timeout.
timeouttime in seconds.

void ecore_con_url_verbose_set ( Ecore_Con_Url url_con,
Eina_Bool  verbose 
)

Toggles libcurl's verbose output.

Parameters:
url_conEcore_Con_Url instance which will be acted upon.
verboseWhether or not to enable libcurl's verbose output.

If verbose is EINA_TRUE, libcurl will output a lot of verbose information about its operations, which is useful for debugging. The verbose information will be sent to stderr.
