Is there an ASP equivalent for cfhttp?

I have a Coldfusion page I am converting to ASP.

What would be the syntax for ASP for this?

<cfhttp url="#cgiConnector#" method="get">
<cfhttpparam type="Header" name="Accept-Encoding" value="deflate;q=0">
<cfhttpparam type="Header" name="TE" value="deflate;q=0">
</cfhttp>

Is there an ASP equivalent for cfhttp?

This should get you what you want. PostData is the data you want to send over.

Set ServerXmlHttp = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0")
ServerXmlHttp.open "POST", "http://www.domain.com/page.asp"
ServerXmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
ServerXlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Length", Len(PostData)
ServerXmlHttp.send PostData

Is this for Classic ASP?

How do I get the response back from http://www.domain.com/page.asp?

Big MontySenior Web Developer / CEO of ExchangeTree.org Commented:
yup, this is for classic asp. To get the response back, you would use the ResponseText (assuming you're expecting plain text back, if not I included the property to use for xml)  property of the ServerXmlHttp object:

Set ServerXmlHttp = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0")
ServerXmlHttp.open "POST", "http://www.domain.com/page.asp"
ServerXmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
ServerXlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Length", Len(PostData)
ServerXmlHttp.send PostData

If ServerXmlHttp.status = 200 Then
      TextResponse = ServerXmlHttp.responseText
      XMLResponse = ServerXmlHttp.responseXML
Else
      ' Handle missing response or other errors here
End If

Set ServerXmlHttp = Nothing

ok, so if the ServerXmlHttp.status is 200 then that is an error?

Then if the response back is a url then the else would be this:

      response.redirect ServerXmlHttp.responseText

Big MontySenior Web Developer / CEO of ExchangeTree.org Commented:
a status of 200 means NO error has occured, it's basically a check to make sure everything worked properly on the remote servers end.

You could do the redirect as you have above, but I would assign the responseText to a variable, close and destroy all of your objects, THEN do the redirect. This ensures no unneeded objects remain in memory before you go to another page.

When I do this:

Set ServerXmlHttp = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0")
ServerXmlHttp.open "POST", "https://e5.onthehub.com/WebStore/Security/AuthenticateUser.aspx?username=dw100&email=dw100@college.edu&key=85515708&shopper_ip=10.1.1.117&last_name=Doe&first_name=John&academic_statuses=staff,students,faculty"
ServerXmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
ServerXlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Length", Len(PostData)
ServerXmlHttp.send PostData

If ServerXmlHttp.status = 200 Then
      TextResponse = ServerXmlHttp.responseText
      XMLResponse = ServerXmlHttp.responseXML
      response.redirect ServerXmlHttp.responseText
End If

Set ServerXmlHttp = Nothing

I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'

Object required: ''

The error is on line:
ServerXlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Length", Len(PostData)
0
 
Big MontySenior Web Developer / CEO of ExchangeTree.org Commented:
you have a typo in between the x and l :)

should be:

ServerXmlHttp.setRequestHeader "Content-Length", Len(PostData)
0
