How to send asynchronous http POST request ?

Server will just accept the request and will not reply with response.

the HTTP protocol dictates that there will a response, but it may not be the response that you want eg the response is sent immediately but the server has not finished processing yet.
HTTP requires the client to pull information, therefore (typically) the client would then need to poll the server waiting for the real response to be sent from the server
I agree. Here's the link:
