ABL client connections
To request the use of the ServerASK protocol on a connection, the ABL client must include the following new property in the connection string parameter of the CONNECT() method on the AppServer server handle:
AppServerKeepalive capacitystring
Indicates that the client would like to employ the AppServer Keepalive protocol on this connection, if supported and enabled by the AppServer. The absence of this property indicates that the (default) value for the ServerASK protocol will be used on this connection. The value capacitystring is either:
*allowServerASK (default)
The following is an example of an ABL Connect() method where the client requests the use of ServerASK:
bool = hSrv:Connect("-URL AppServer://myhost:myport/myservice
-AppServerKeepalive allowServerASK").
