    Doing a http call in Indesign CS4

      In moving our code to CS4, we saw problems with the use of the webaccesslib.dll to use the HttpConnection object, which we use extensively. The Javascript Tools Guide has this statement:

      "FTP and HTTP are no longer directly supported in the ExtendScript API. The low-level Socket object is still available for implementing TCP connections."

      We wanted to confirm that the ability to do an http call directly with the HttpConnection object has been removed from CS4 before I start writing code to mimic the functionality with the Socket object. Has anyone already been through this pain of writing it, or figured out a way to make the old HttpConnection object (which has been invaluable to us) work?
