I have a custom server that accepts HTTP POST requests and returns a
response as the POST reply. Multiple POSTs may be outstanding at any
given time. I have a client that will be sending requests to it, but
needs some way to match each response with its original request.
I wanted to add an HTTP header or form element to the request that
contains a request identifier, that the server would copy into the
response. But I haven't been able to discover any header or form
element that is mirrored from the request to the response. I suppose
that this is because what I'm doing is beyond the original intent of
HTTP. Anyway, I wanted to find out if there is a standard way of doing
this before I create my own method. Thanks.
