B4J Library [B4X] xHttpServer (Http Server + jQuery)

It is a personal project of mine that I started as a hobby on B4i and it has become an interesting project, so that I have modified it to be multiplatform.

It is an http server, which allows a browser to navigate on html pages stored on the device. In addition, dynamic pages can also be created. Read the parameters of the GET and POST commands and read and write the COOKIES in the browser.
It also implements the WebSocket, starting from an example published in this forum by @Erel for the jServer library. I also made the jQueryElement class to interface with the JavaScript elements of the Browser page.
(You can get the source of the QueryElement class at this Post)

Obviously it is not at the level of existing and established servers, but it is a project that I want to share and that I think can be useful since it is cross-platform. The examples are in post 2

It is entirely written in B4X.
It may have some bugs
It does not support SSL / TLS. I didn't understand how it works.

Dear friend, I just tried and everything works fine.
I don't think I use iReleaseLogger in my examples. In any case it must be removed as indicated here. But is not a problem with my library.

Try one of my examples and see if that works
I just tried again, as well. I don't really want to create useless app entries in my App Store Connect by uploading one of your examples. But see my steps below:

--B4I IDE--
1. Build Release App
2. Download Last Build
3. Upload To App Store
4. Check email, got email stating ITMS-90338: Non-public API usage - The app references non-public symbols in APP_NAME: __NSSetLogCStringFunction
5. Uncheck iHttpServer in Libraries Manager
6. Increment Version
7. Build Release App
8. Download Last Build
9. Upload To App Store
10. Check email, no warnings, and approves in App Store Connect for testflight.

Few things to note:
I am using the Hosted Builder as I have a windows machine I develop with.
I have tried the above steps with and without the "Clean Project" between builds, makes no difference.
In my libraries manager, everything appears to be up to date except 2 libraries (iHttpUtils2 and XUI Views).
I am using B4I v 7.80.
I've attached a screenshot that displays some of my project properties with identifiable information obscured.

It is not necessary to publish an example. You should run my example in DEBUG instead. To do this you need to change the package name.
I also use HOESTED BUILDER with windows.
If the example works, the problem is to be found in your App.

When you do this test tell me what the outcome is.

PS. Did it work for you before? Have you made any changes?

Your mis-understanding. Everything works fine in debug mode. I can include the ihttpserver or ireleaselogger, or any other library for that matter. But once I attempt to upload it to testflight, I get an email from apple saying the app has issues that need to be resolved, and they mention the "ITMS-90338: Non-public API usage - The app references non-public symbols in APP_NAME: __NSSetLogCStringFunction" issue.

The issue is not within my application. As I mentioned before, 2 attempts in a row to publish, the only difference being that iHttpServer library is checked in Library Manager. Without iHttpServer it approves just fine, and with, it fails and I get the above email from apple.

Now I understand. Sorry I misunderstood. Give me time to think what the problem might be

Excellent! Apple appears to be accepting the application now. I have not worked with it long enough to really provide a whole lot of feedback, but the little bit I have used it, it appears very solid, minus the small hiccup of the ITMS-90338 error. Keep up the great work! Thanks again!
