Release Notes

Method Platform Updates - August 18, 2011

Call Web Service Action

  • The number of parameters allowed on the Call Web Service action has been increased from 5 to 10.  Long term, we plan to make this unlimited.
  • Due to your feedback that it has been difficult to debug the Call Web Service action, we created a test environment.  I think you'll really like this.  Just edit the Call Web Service action, click Prepare test environment, then click Go to test environment.  You'll be able to test out different parameters, URLs and function, see what the resulting full HTTP POST is that Method generates, plus see the result that the web service call is providing.
  • There was a significant speed improvement on grids. We did a security update about 3 weeks ago that slowed down the rendering of grids. While we haven't removed the security update, we have optimized it to be much faster.

The test environment is a great addition.  Not only did it let me debug the web service, it helped me use the character function to parse out the web service response.  Should save people a lot of time in the future.
