One of the developers on my team needs to make an HTTP call in a stored procedure in SQL server 2000. This procedure runs at midnight every night and we need to send an HTTP POST at certain points throughout it. However, the developer is unsure of how to do this exactly.

Does anyone know how I can make a HTTP call in an SQL query?

Write a COM dll to do this in VB, then call the dll using

xp_OACreate
xp_OAMethod and
xp_OADestroy

Then the developer will have to code directly against the MSXML dll using the extended stored procedures mentioned previously by bukko

Here is a sample of a GET from T-SQL. Might work for POST too.
