How to correspond incoming http replies to their previous http request counterparts?



First off, I would like to say I'm totally new to BB and I'm coming from an Android background.


I've been looking at samples such as:




I have an application which is making a lot of different (and similar) web requests. How do I identify these incoming replies so I can demux them to their appropriate components? Can I tag them somehow?


Thanks and please let me know if I can be more clear.

Re: How to correspond incoming http replies to their previous http request counterparts?

Hi there; assuming you are referring to Ajax requests to a web service (i.e. XMLHttpRequest or other similar APIs), then a session is created when you initiate the request between the client and server.

For instance, if you make 3 requests (i.e. 3 connections):
1) Request for First Name.
2) Request for Middle Name.
3) Request for Last Name.

And let's say our person is George Allan Bob.

Then even if request 3 returns first, connection 3 will be what receives Bob.

And connection 1 will receive Goerge, and connection 2 will receive Allan.

Basically, when you make a request, that sessions stays active between the client/server, and a response will be returned to the same connection that initiated the request.

Let me know if that isn't clear :-)
