[Freeswitch-users] mod_httapi

mod_httapi works by querying a url to obtain the xml code
to run. An example of such code is
<document type="xml/freeswitch-httapi">
<execute application="info"></execute>
<execute application="set" data="Kyle_test=Rock_on"></execute>
<execute application="info"></execute>
<execute application="transfer" data="9888"></execute>

Where FreeSWITCH would fist run 'info' then (if permissions are set) set
a new variable of 'Kyle_test' to the value of 'Rock_on'. FreeSWITCH
would then run 'info' again and transfer to 9888. Just replace the
execute with the action you want and confirm it is in the proper syntax
according to http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/Mod_httapi
If I misunderstood stood your question and you were in fact asking how to
call this from the dial plan, then use <action application="httapi"
data=""/> where the url in data
is the url that will provide the xml file.
