I need to post some XML to an external web address (Java servlet on another web server) from within a shopping cart written in perl. I need example code for how to do this. I also need to know if it can be done to an SSL address.

Hi Jimkat,

Try like this:

use LWP::UserAgent;
$ua = new LWP::UserAgent;
$req = new HTTP::Request 'POST','https://www.webserver.com/script.pl';
$req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
$req->content("variable1=value1&variable2=value2&variable3=value3");
$res = $ua->request($req);

the $res variable will contain the result of your post.

You will of course need to have the LWP module installed, and  Crypt::SSLeay or
IO::Socket::SSL will be necessary to communicate through SSL.


Hope this helps.
