Subject Re: Parsing jelly:http results with jelly:html
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2003 00:29:12 GMT
HTTP tags are working for me but I am saving the output to a variable.

  <http:get url="..." var="outVar"/>

Looking at the code, unfortunately, this seems to be necessary.  Note 
that "outVar" is a HTTPMethod class (see

with various fields, including

${outVar.responseBodyAsStream} and ${outVar.responseBodyAsString} and 

So, if I remember correctly, you would cal

<html:parse var="myXMLDocument">${outVar.responseBodyAsString} </html:parse>

or something like that.

I could use the "html" attribute of the html:parse tag, but need to use the http tags so I
have access to request parameters and can do POSTs.)
