Sorry for editing the original post. I should have left the original and added some of my changed content. I will check out some of your suggestions. Any other suggestions on how you would post your XML data instead of using LWP::UserAgent? Update: So I created a little test script, and I saw the test XML post in the jboss log correctly:
#!/usr/bin/perl use XML::Writer; use LWP::UserAgent; my $output; my $writer = new XML::Writer(OUTPUT => \$output); $writer->startTag("greeting", "class" => "simple"); $writer->characters("Hello, world!"); $writer->endTag("greeting"); $writer->end(); print $output; my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $url = 'http://localhost:8180/request'; my $response = $browser->post($url,Content => $output);
And I added this at the end of my current script, and got this error:
Not an ARRAY reference at /usr/share/perl5/HTTP/Request/Common.pm line + 83.
my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $url = 'http://localhost:8180/request'; my $response = $browser->post($url,$writer);
I tried with Content => \$writer, CONTENT => $writer, and just $writer. I'll keep fiddling with this unless someone else has suggestions on a better way to post this $writer to a specific port/url
