I like to to create a small application for getting shipping rate/quote from UPS. I got support document from UPS and tried but not able to use it, As I am new to XML. I created xml string and passit to url, but did not get result. Here is url samples

{forced line breaks have been applied to the code below - ee_ai_construct, cs admin}

https://www.ups.com/ups.app/xml/Rate?<?xml version="1.0"?><AccessRequest xml:lang="en-US">
<AccessLicenseNumber>BBBB5E545E473B44</AccessLicenseNumber><UserId>seanoday</UserId><Password>highland</Password>
</AccessRequest><?xml version="1.0"?><RatingServiceSelectionRequest xml:lang="en-US">
<Request><TransactionReference><CustomerContext>Bare Bones Rate Request</CustomerContext><XpciVersion>1.0001</XpciVersion>
</TransactionReference><RequestAction>Rate</RequestAction>
<RequestOption>Rate</RequestOption></Request><PickupType><Code>01</Code></PickupType><Shipment><Shipper>
