The setBridge() method specifies a bridge URL to receive communications. Specifying a bridge URL can be useful when the Siebel Analytics Web server and the user's Web server reside on different machines, or when you want to modify the results in your application development environment.
After the setBridge() method is called, all requests from the client browser to the Siebel Analytics Web server are sent to the bridge URL, which then forwards requests to the Siebel Analytics Web server.
You are responsible to make sure that the client browser provides a handler to the bridge URL in the form of a Java servlet, an Active Server Pages (ASP) page, a Common Gateway Interface (CGI), an Internet Server application programming interface (ISAPI), or an equivalent application.
The new callback URL is based on the bridge URL, with the addition of a RedirectURL argument. The value of the RedirectURL argument should be the original value of the URL, encoded using standard URL encoding rules.
Internally, Siebel Analytics Web usually uses relative URLs for callback links. For example, if the original callback link is saw.dll?Go and the bridge URL is http://myserver/myapplication/sawbridge, the new callback URL is http://myserver/myapplication/sawbridge?RedirectURL=saw.dll%3fGo.
