Hello,
Does anyone know a company that supplies a HTTP web component - that can grab/tear webpages -  that can be access via asp pages, and that will run on Windows 2008, 64 bit.
It does not matter if it is a commercial product - as long as it works!
Regards
Jamie

Hi Carrzkiss,
I'm looking for a Asp HTTP component that allows you to GET/POST/HEAD documents via the HTTP protocol - HTTP Web Site Scraping. Ideally, it would be a product that is still available, as the one I used to use, ASPHttp by ServerOjects is unlikely to run on Server 2008 64 bit.

What about the ServerXMLHTTP?
<%
 
function getSource(getSourceUrl) ' returns the source code of given site url getSourceUrl
	set getSourceXMLHTTP = server.createobject("msxml2.serverxmlhttp") 
	getSourceXMLHTTP.open "GET", getSourceUrl, false
	getSourceXMLHTTP.send ""
	getSourceResponseText = getSourceXMLHTTP.responsetext
	set getSourceXMLHTTP = nothing
	getSource = getSourceResponseText
end function
 
response.write getSource("http://www.experts-exchange.com/")
 
%>
