hey there,

i want to develop a little ap for controlling a website (dont want to open the browser all the time)
so i started but now its going a little bit tricky

this is what firefox says (live http headers):

so i started creating the JSONObject with the library but now i get stuck...

i use HtmlUnit to open the file.php?getSearchResults but how should i pass the JSONObject to it?

this is the first time i do such expert stuff, so please be patience with me

ps.: i didnt know where to post this, so i hope this is the correct forum

got the solution... just used HttpClient, PostMethod and added the application/json content
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
subject: JSON and http header
It's not a secret anymore!
