Receiving XML over HTTP POST using ASP

Ok I'm in new land here and need a hint to get me started. I'm setting up the ability to receive MMS messages on our blog system. The way the system works a ASP file on my server will receive a XML page via HTTP POST when an MMS is send to me.

But how does that work. How do I get the XML data into a variable in my ASP page so I can start processing it?

THis will work if you already have an xml file created by your MMS app

Is this the first time you have used XML with ASP?  

Do you have an example of the xml file that you can show us (copy and paste it so we can see it)?  I can then write you a simple script and an example to show you how to use xml.  It's quite straight forward once you get an understanding of it.

No it's no my first time with XML and the problem is not processing the XML data - the problem is getting a hold of the XML data since it is not in a file but send to my .asp file through a HTTP POST.

I got this code from my provider:

Set objXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")

objXML.setProperty "ServerHTTPRequest", True
objXML.async = False

objXML.load(Request)


Can anyone shed some light on what that does?

The following code would load the xml file into objXML which you can then access the data in the file.

<%
Set objXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
objXML.async = False  
strFile = Server.MapPath("http://www.mobileproviders.com/mms.xml")
objXML.Load (strFile)
%>

You can use the above code to load the xml file and if you can send me an exmple of the xml i will give you code to extract the data from it.  Its easier to show you then explain it - honest.

bugger, should not have server.mappath

<%
Set objXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
objXML.async = False  
strFile = "http://www.mobileproviders.com/mms.xml"
objXML.Load (strFile)
%>

OK, are they going to query one of your asp pages when ever you receive an MMS message or are you going to run the page on a shedule to query your mms inbox?

Yes excatly and the code that does the job is as posted earlier - received a test MMS last night and it worked...

Set objXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")

objXML.setProperty "ServerHTTPRequest", True
objXML.async = False

objXML.load(Request)

From there on I can process my XML data from the objXML as usual...

So that's the answer
