Additional steps to use Guides after installing the QF

The submission process for the guides has changed. The new process is: 

  • Now, Guides send the Data XML as a URL encoded parameter in a POST request. The dataxml parameter contains the XML.
    Evaluate the noHeaders parameter to verify whether the data XML is present as stream or URL parameter. If the value is true, the data is passed as a request parameters or if the value is false, the data is passed as a stream.
  • Now, while previewing the Guide and submitting the page, the content type is displayed as application/x-www-url-encoded instead of text or XML.
    If your servlet code reads request.inputStream and passes it to XMLParser, similar fiunctionality is not supported on the newer versions of Adobe Flash Player. Instead, read the XML data from the dataxml URL parameter and pass it to the parser.  To address the issue, modify the code to be:  
If(“true”.equals(request.getParameter(“noHeaders”)) {
   dataXML = request.getParameter(“dataxml”)
} else {
          // the way they were reading the DATA XML before

On submission of Guides, the following new parameters are also sent:  

Parameters Value
noHeaders true
guideSubmit true
dataxml <xml content>
contentType application\xml
