Dispatching Requests and Responses

One reason to use WebSnap for your Web server application development is that WebSnap components automatically handle HTML requests and responses. Instead of writing event handlers for common page transfer chores, you can focus your efforts on your business logic and server design.

Before handling any requests, the Web application module initializes the Web context object (of type TWebContext). The Web context object, which is accessed by calling the global WebContext function, provides global access to variables used by components servicing the request. For example, the Web context contains the TWebRequest and TWebResponse objects to represent the HTTP request message and the response that should be returned.
