    HttpService Issues (Bug?)

    Matlus Level 1
      I find tha the HttpSerice object doesn't behave very well. It has a mind of it's own when it comes to "method" and "contentType"

      The only time is does a "POST" (even if you set method = "GET") is when the contentType is set to "application/xml". Further, the only time you can actually send any addtional data (that shows up in the HTTP content part) is the same as above.

      I find also that the content is html encoded instead of url encoded. For example, if you send data in the form of
      name1=value1&name2=value2&name3=value3

      The server receives it as
      name1=value1&name2=value2&name3=value3

      This is not the correct HTTP behaviour and I hope this is not "by design"?

      I'd like to have a "raw" HttpService (or HttpSocket) over which I have far greater control. Is there something like this already available? If not, what are the chances of these issues getting fixed?

      Thanks.
