Class Overview

HTTP POST method.

The HTTP POST method is defined in section 9.5 of RFC2616:

The POST method is used to request that the origin server accept the entity enclosed in the request as a new subordinate of the resource identified by the Request-URI in the Request-Line. POST is designed to allow a uniform method to cover the following functions:
  • Annotation of existing resources
  • Posting a message to a bulletin board, newsgroup, mailing list, or similar group of articles
  • Providing a block of data, such as the result of submitting a form, to a data-handling process
  • Extending a database through an append operation
