I have a java code which imports java.io & java.net. I am trying to post data into multiple sites using HTTPUrlConnection in java.  Can anybody possibly let me know whether i can re-write the same equivalent code in PHP.

The only thing you need is to write php3 script which posts the data.

The following code isn't tested. us111 always tests the code, but not me :(

Try using this class to POST data:
http://px.sklar.com/code.html?code_id=313

Use it this way:

$hp=new http_post;

// Setup data to post:
$hp->set_element(array("username" => "John Doe",
                                     "password" => "dead-ringer",
                                     "age" => "99"));
$a->set_timeout(10);

while ( ... more servers to post data ...)
{
    // $hp->set_action("http://www.somehost.org:8080/incoming.php3");
   $hp->set_action($action_from_array);
   
   // send data without showing output.
   $hp->send(false);
}

I have got some idea and that class will be useful. I am involved in a project using PHP. I'm new to PHP. our project is job portal. Posting  resumes to other sites. We are able to post resumes using java HTTPUrlConnection. Same I tried using the http_post

<?php
require ('http_post.php3');

$hp = new http_post;

$hp->set_element(array("function"=>"post","source"=>"cm","first_name"=>"balaji3","last_name"=>"sundaram1","city"=>"bangalore","state"=>"Other","postal_code"=>"560068","country"=>"IND","phone"=>"123123","email"=>"sbala43@usa.net","job_title"=>"s/wEng","employer"=>"ramco","function"=>"ADM","resume"=>"akjbkjdbkjbsakjdbksajdbkajsbd"));

if($hp->set_action("http://server12.careermosaic.com:8080/resumes/cgi/add-resume2.cgi"))
    echo "successfully posted";
$hp->send(false);
?>

but it is not posting the value inside set_element are html page name and value. can u tell me what is the problem. Please answer me. Anyway I will accept ur good way that u showed for me. Thank u

This line actually posts the data :
 $hp->send(false);
 and not set_action.

Hmm, by the way - are you sure that you nees POST method and not GET ?
In case when server needs GET method stuff is more simple - you don't need http_post class et all.

  Your problem seems is, probably, that
http://server12.careermosaic.com:8080/resumes/cgi/add-resume2.cgi
  address is incorrect - it doesn't work for me in any way.
