HTTP_RESPONSE_V1 structure

The HTTP_RESPONSE_V1 structure contains data associated with an HTTP response.

Do not use HTTP_RESPONSE_V1 directly in your code; use HTTP_RESPONSE instead to ensure that the proper version, based on the operating system the code is compiled under, is used.

Syntax


typedef struct _HTTP_RESPONSE {
  ULONG                 Flags;
  HTTP_VERSION          Version;
  USHORT                StatusCode;
  USHORT                ReasonLength;
  PCSTR                 pReason;
  HTTP_RESPONSE_HEADERS Headers;
  USHORT                EntityChunkCount;
  PHTTP_DATA_CHUNK      pEntityChunks;
} HTTP_RESPONSE_V1, *PHTTP_RESPONSE_V1;

Members

Flags

The optional logging flags change the default response behavior. These can be one of any of the HTTP_RESPONSE_FLAG values.

Version

This member is ignored; the response is always an HTTP/1.1 response.

StatusCode

Numeric status code that characterizes the result of the HTTP request (for example, 200 signifying "OK" or 404 signifying "Not Found"). For more information and a list of these codes, see Section 10 of RFC 2616.

If a request is directed to a URL that is reserved but not registered, indicating that the appropriate application to handle it is not running, then the HTTP Server API itself returns a response with status code 400, signifying "Bad Request". This is transparent to the application. A code 400 is preferred here to 503 ("Server not available") because the latter is interpreted by some smart load balancers as an indication that the server is overloaded.

ReasonLength

Size, in bytes, of the string pointed to by the pReason member not including the terminating null. May be zero.

pReason

A pointer to a human-readable, null-terminated string of printable characters that characterizes the result of the HTTP request (for example, "OK" or "Not Found").

Headers

An HTTP_RESPONSE_HEADERS structure that contains the headers used in this response.

EntityChunkCount

A number of entity-body data blocks specified in the pEntityChunks array. This number cannot exceed 100. If the response has no entity body, this member must be zero.

pEntityChunks

An array of HTTP_DATA_CHUNK structures that together specify all the data blocks that make up the entity body of the response.
