I am also confused. Under what circumstances if the URL queried again?
Is it initiated from another request from the "work" section or does it
happen after the "work" section has been completed, then auto-changing
the request url from the original request from the XML dialplan? Eg to
execute an application it's stated:
<execute application data action>*DATA*</execute>
: Execute a FreeSWITCH app.
application : The app to run
action : Change url to submit to.
temp-action : Change url to submit to. just for the next loop.
data : Alternate source for app data
*DATA* : The app data
But what is meant by "the url to submit to" and "the next loop"? IE what
submits a request (and what is submitted) and what is the loop? Does the
loop in fact continue hitting the webserver until the CGI returns a
<break> in its <work> Tag?
