          URLLoader is the equivalent of a GET request, whereas HTTPRequest can use
          either GET or POST. URLLoader works seamlessly locally in development or on
          the server, whereas to get HTTPRequest to work locally, you need to change
          project settings (and then change them back before you upload).

          HTTPService seems to be strictly for web services, and so I don't know much
          about it. It seems to me that the method most people find when they are new
          means that the web service information winds up being hard coded, though it
          doesn't have to be.

          HTH;
