Query String

You can send HTTP requests to SWE using a query string. For example, the following code sample illustrates an Active Server Page that uses MSXML to make an HTTP request. The request logs in to the Siebel application and navigates to the Account List View. The XML response from SWE is transformed into HTML using XSLT.

NOTE:  For code snippets that demonstrate transforming an XML response from SWE into HTML, see Sample XSLT.
