How do I call doPost?

I am required to use a servlet which has an implementation for both doGet and doPost. However I am required to call the doPost method by "posting" an xml file(or SOAP message). Any idea how I can do that? some code illustration will be greatly appreciated.

you can call doPost from doGet() if that's what you are asking.

What mechanism are you using to initiate the request?

Basically I have a set of parameters that I need to pass to a servlet. Previously I was passing them by calling the servlet like

this "http://localhost:8080/.../Servlet?param1=?¶m2=?"

So I assume the above calls the doGet method of the servlet.

Now I am required to implement a doPost method for the same servlet, which would receive those parameters in an XML file. So I am sending the attributes via SOAP to the doPost. This is the code for the class that initiates the request:

I agree. Here's the link:
