Hi,

I am using HttpURLCOnnection class to post a data to a url(which is a web service). The webservice accepts data as text/xml.

Following is the code snippet i used:

URL url = new URL("http://xxx.xxx.xx.xx:8080/SampleWebService.svc");
HttpURLConnection conn =(HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
conn.setDoOutput(true);
conn.setRequestMethod("POST");
conn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type","text/xml");
String urlStr="param1="URLEncoder.encode(value1)"¶m2="+URLEncoder.encode(value2)
OutputStreamWriter wr = new OutputStreamWriter(conn.getOutputStream());
wr.write(urlStr);
wr.flush();
InputStream in2 = conn.getInputStream();
in2.close();
wr.close();

But when i execute the code, I am getting following error at the line(InputStream in2 = conn.getInputStream()(IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 400 for URL

Can someone please suggest a solution. Am i missing something here?

Thanks in advance

A related thread. And like that one, this thread is going to the Sockets forum as well.
