Hi All,

My module is supposed to talk with an external system.

API specs tells input XML data can be posted to link http://blah:8080/....
and HTTPResponse body contains output data in XML format.

Please let me know how to handle this using java.

Like i want to know how to post XML document to URL and how to retrieve output XML document from resultant HTTP response.

TIA
Manu

You could use the Jakarta Commons HttpClient, which is a very useful library for HTTP networking in Java. Another, perfectly valid option, would be to write your own "HTTP POST sender" by Googling for some samples.
