Allow DML Insert Before A Web Service Callout


Currently Salesforce throws an error if you try to insert a record in the SF database prior to making a web service callout (HTTPRequest) saying "you have uncommitted changes to the database"

We need to create a record before calling various web services so that we have a reference Id to send along with the call.  There are hacks to getting around this limitation ... we've tried many of them ... but really, we just need to have this limitation removed.

Salesforce team - please provide support for DLM inserts prior to a web service callout in a single transaction.

    This can't be supported in the multi-tenant environment, in order to protect the service.
