How to pass parameters from PowerBuilder Application to a webpage.

PlZ let me know how I can be able to send parameters from PowerBuilder application to a webpage.

I need to send certain predefined parameters in XML format to a webpage owned by another application so it opens up the webpage with all the required data for that transaction already populated on the webpage.

This should happen when our users complete the actions they need to take on that case and click on close case button which should generate this XML string and pass it as parameters to the webpage and open the page.
