    Delphi help. Web request. Please :)

    So I just got off the phone with a guy from another company that does dispatching work. They are wanting to interface with our product. We currently interface with many other dispatching companies. The way they send stuff to us is via a web request to a jsp.
    For example:
    http://ourserverstuf../jspname.jsp?a...lue&arg2=value... etc

    The problem is that the guy didn't know how to do this in Delphi. He claims that he is an old school programmer and only does stuff using tcp/ip. Now rather than me having to write an interface for them (which I have had to do with 3 other companies) I insisted that he go with our this much easier protocal of posting to the jsp. He asked if I could send him a code sample in Delphi of how to do this. I figured it would be worth it in the end so I agreed

    Does anyone have a sample for doing this or maybe a very simple library I could send him? It would also have to receive the response.

    Thanks for the help

    P.S. my coding is limited to C++, Java and C# or else I'd do it myself.

    oh, that was just an example. I didn't want to give the actual page that it would be calling. It is basically just calling a web page with a few arguments.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. He just want's a link in his Delphi program that opens a web page when you click it? ...or not open a web page, just "post" a web request? Give me more detail and I will be happy to help.

    Ya, post a web request. He called me yesterday and said he figured it out himself so no need to answer the question.
