Subject RE: HTTP Post using XML
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2004 04:44:16 GMT
Yes, the servlets expect the data to be passed via an HTTP POST.  I was not aware that the
CInclude Transformer could be used for an HTTP POST, so thank you for pointing that out. 
However, I don't think it would work in my case, if I'm reading it right.  It looks like you
can specify XML in a parameter, but it doesn't allow you to specify an XML document to be
sent as the request body of the POST, correct?

	I'm assuming from the title of your message that the servlets you're talking
	about expect to have data passed to them in an HTTP POST? If so, the only
	way I know of to do a POST from Cocoon is with the CInclude transformer.
	Check out the 'advanced' section of this page:
	There may be other ways to do a POST from Cocoon, but this is the only one I
	know. Anyone else?

	I need to write a reporting application that obtains data from multiple
	services, transforms it and returns it as HTML.  The services are servlet
	based and accept an XML document as input and returns an XML document as
	output.  Some of the output from one service call will be used as input in
	another service call.
	Can anyone tell me what generator(s) I would use to accomplish this, or do I
	need to write one myself?  Sorry if this is obvious - I've spent a couple
	days searching, but can't find the answer.
	Thanks in advance,
