Hi!

I have to pass an XMLfile to a serverbased scipt and then receive the result (also XML).
How can i do this?
Can I use the html put-method (or post) ?

The XMLfile i have pass to the script:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<OP="GETINFO">
  <USERNAME>USERNAME</USERNAME>
  <PWD>PWD</PWD>
</OP>

thanks

Definately  you should be careful about Netmasters components (NMHTTP, NM ....) and this for many reasons

1) they are not stable (or they were not when I used them less that one year ago). I even bought sources and support. I have emails attesting it.

I lost a huge time trying to make them work

2) If I understood it well Winshoes' author claims to who wants to know it that he sold a licence to netmasters for which he was never paid for, and that NM was selling its components illegally.  Of course I am not judge of this case, but I think it is relevant to know it : http://www.pbe.com/Winshoes/OtherComps.html

if you need good internet suites I recommend :

a) ICS components (freeware) very good components, wonderful support
http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/indexuk.htm

I do not use them in my product because I am doing multithreading and they are more efficient in a messaging strategy;

b) IPWorks components (www.dev-soft.com) shareware about $290 , the reference. they have versions for many plateforms they work quick and well and have a good support.

Be careful do take ICK components (same company but a pain in the neck when I tried them)

regards, Marc

About winshoes, I just wanted you to know about it. personally I don't use them, mainly because
1) I found what I need,
2) they do not fit in my architecture,
3) as they (seem to) have the same origin of fastnet components and due to all the problems I had with those, I am afraid to get them back.

FPiette's HTTP component includes post but not Put. however the two methods seem to be quite alike.

after, everything depends on what your server requires.

i don't know exactly what the server requires.
The program is for a competition. They sent me a decription of what the program shall do and it's said the xml-file has to be passed to a serverbased script,witch returns data in another xml-file.
Any idea?

You can use the POST method of the NMHTTP component to send XML data to the server. I've used this:

nmHTTP.Post(szServer, szXML);
FDocument.loadXML(nmHTTP.Body);

where szXML is a string containing the XML (you can load it from your file). The FDocument is an MSXML parser instance that loads up the XML returned by the server script. (This is for a stock quote application which sends the stock tickers in XML to an ISAPI DLL on the server, which returns the quotes in XML)
