i am trying to call & get another url data.So is trying to create new instance of http class as follows -

$options = array();
$transport =  new JHttpTransportCurl($options); 
// Create a 'curl' transport.
$http = new JHttp($options, $transport);
$response = $http->get('http://api.example.com/shoes');

but it's not working as somewhere wrong in line 4. Please save my time hoping this is the right way to make call to another API url.

  • Something wrong? Do you have any errors? Jun 10, 2014 at 6:53
  • i set error reporting but no error shown but blank screen. by debug what i see is debug hangs in line 4, it's look like it can't create a new instance of jhttptransportcurl.question is how do i make call to external url using http class.

  • Well honestly I do not know why it is stacking there, but you can try to use JHttpFactory to get Http: JHttpFactory::getHttp($options, 'curl') Jun 10, 2014 at 13:01
  • i am using joomla 2.5 and this class is where?

Just to have a valid answer.

The problem was in $options - it is an array, but JHttpTransportCurl constructor require JRegistry instance. So

$options = array();

should be changed to

$options = new JRegistry();
