Receive HTTP POST in Omnis Studio
We have a service that needs to send data to our Omnis 220.127.116.11 app on Windows. They only support sending an HTTP POST, not an HTTP GET. I can write a remote task, and when a HTTP GET is sent to Omnis then the $construct of the remote task is called with the data sent in the GET as parameters of the $construct. Is it possible to have the same functionality with HTTP POST? As far as I can tell the HTTP POST is reserved for use with the SOAP WebServices in Omnis.
If this is not possible, does anyone have any experience working around this limitation? The only feasable workaround I have at the moment is to put a proxy application in front of Omnis to receive the POST, and convert the POST to a GET and pass this on to Omnis, wait for the response, and reply appropriately. Another option could be to somehow use Apache mod_rewrite to somehow do this, however I am at the moment at a loss how to do this. I really need to be able to use the Studio web services, so a tool like TCPTalk from Kelly will probably not be able to solve my requirements.
