[Freeswitch-users] Javascript: HTTP(S) POST to website

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your reply.

No, it just does a HTTP GET of the URL.
With a HTTP POST the parameters shouldn't go as URL parameters, but 
should be posted after the connection is opened.

With the functions fetchURL() or fetchURLHash(), there is no separate 
argument for the POST parameters, nor a way to explicitly set the method 
to POST (instead of GET).

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks, Birgit
