Subject Equivalent of XMLHTTPRequest?
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2001 12:11:04 GMT

I'll have to start by stating that I'm a complete newbie here, so please
forgive my ignorance.

Basically, my company has asked me to convert some web pages that use
Microsoft's ASP technology to work under JSP.  Here is the code I need to

	Dim xmlHTTP
	Set xmlHTTP = server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
	xmlHTTP.Open "POST" "HTTP://some_server/cCustomer.asp", false
	xmlText = "<Request><first_name>" & first_name &
"</first_name><last_name>" & last_name & "</last_name></Request>"
	xmlHTTP.Send xmlText

	resp = xmlHTTP.responseText
	Set objXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
	objXML.async = false

etc etc.

cCustomer.asp is a "robot" ASP page will lives on an NT-based IIS webserver
(this will stay) whose job is to send a response in XML format to the POST
from the JSP page.  I just do not know where to start!  We have the Apache
webserver running under IBM AIX, which is where the JSP pages will run.  I
would be most grateful if someone could help me out by:

*	stating what add-on software I'm going to need to install with the
Apache webserver (Tomcat? Xerces?)
*	helping me out with converting the code fragment above
*	giving me any other pointers/starting points to help me

Thanks in advance,
