Question: Does anyone know if it's possible to send a request through some HTTP client and not wait for the response? Super strange, I know.
machinewar: No, I mean the response will predictably get hung up, and yet the request is successful. The goal would be to send the request, and just move on in execution - the response doesn't matter.
I don't even know if I want to use such a solution, but I am just finding out if it's possible so that I can weigh options.
This is all backend, so not really an AJAX candidate. I thought about background processing, which is another option. My guess is my original question isn't really possible.
There's always opening up a new thread, EM deferring, etc. And that may be what I have to do.
I think I'm already in that boat. This is not an _ideal_ API I'm using, and I would definitely say this is unacceptable from an API. However, it is what it is in this case.
havenwood: In a perfect world, yes, but I was planning on working around that piece.
havenwood: I know. I'm sad even asking these questions. Just send good vibes my way.
