3.0 beta 2

How can I send a POST request instead of a GET through a AT.XML.Table?

var theUpdateTable = new AW.XML.Table;	
theDate = new Date();
theUpdateTable.setURL("http://"+location.host+"/test/test.dll/Request?"+theXML+"?"+theDate.getTime());
theUpdateTable.request();


How can I send the 'theXML' data as POSTDATA instead of as part of the URL?

Well This method is part of the inherited class AW.HTTP.request

.defineProperty("requestMethod", "GET");

Try using

theUpdateTable.defineProperty("requestMethod", "POST");

I haven't tested but it might work.

Thanks but where would the postdata(theXML) itself be put? Is that another property that has to be set?

From what I can see in the source it could be

theUpdateDate.defineProperty("requestData", "this=that&something=else");

You may want to get Alex to confirm.

Thanks Tony, I'll give it a try.

I get a bad request from the web server. Perhaps the http headers are different?

Looking at the POST request the content-length is 0 and no xml is sent. So the postdata is not sent.

theUpdateData.setParameter("command",theXML) instead of theUpdateDate.defineProperty("requestData", theXML);


Did the trick. :)

Thanks Tony.

Good deal. I didn't see the "command" param in the source, but glad you got it working.

Yes, should be something like

theUpdateTable.setRequestMethod("POST");
theUpdateTable.setParameter("command", theXML);
