    HTTP POST content

    It looks like posting content (not parameters or headers) via the HTTP service isn't possible, ie a request similar to:

    POST /url....
    Host: somesite.com
    Content-Length: 27
    Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

    content to be posted to the server

    Clearly the parameters aren't a problem but has anyone found anything different regarding the actual content to be posted?

    Seems like it would be a reasonably significant piece of missing functionality on the service otherwise.

    Re: HTTP POST content

    Yeah, with Http Service v2 you can set headers but setting the body is not possible ;(


    Parameters can of course be binary (to send images etc) but if Api requires stuff in body then you're out of luck ;(

    What protocol would you like to use, Atom or something?

    Of course there's always a chance of creating your own php/perl etc script that delegates the request in correct format.
