A Liberator Web module provides a Web service to clients through the standard HTTP request mechanism. The service uses a separate client-Liberator connection so that it doesn’t block the normal RTTP connections used for streaming data to clients and for real-time messaging. Web modules are used to access services whose delivery isn’t time critical, such as exporting a blotter to a file that’s downloaded on the client.
Liberator currently has just one optional Web module; the snapshot module, which allows a client to obtain, in a file, a snapshot of a Liberator container that holds blotter contents. This capability is provided as a (built-in) Liberator Config blade called BlotterExport. For more about this, see How can I… Obtain a container snapshot in a CSV or XLSX file. To use this blade, you also need an extension to your Liberator licence.
