Below a short example of an API method:

Do $cinst.$addhttpresponseheader('content-type','text/plain')

Calculate lnActorID as randintrng(1,200)
Do lpoSalesAnalysis.$ActorSalesByCategory(lnActorID,llActorSalesResults) ; The call here delivers the result from the database into the local list llActorSalesResults

Do OJSON.$listorrowtojson(llActorSalesResults,kUniTypeUTF8,lchErrorText,kOJSONoptionNone) Returns lbinResultBinary

Do $cinst.$sethttpstatus(200,'OK')

Quit method lbinResultBinary

Hope this helps…
