[thelist] XML transactions via HTTP - can anyone help?

Hi all,

Working on this project where I am putting my own components to work
with Kurant StoreSense. They have their own proprietary DB.

Their SDK states that:

"The StoreSense XTE (StoreSense XML Transaction Engine) allows you to
query and modify StoreSense through the use of XML transactions sent
via HTTP"

Now they don't actually tell you in the docs HOW to use XML via HTTP.
All they give me is something like this (for a Query:)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<XTE version="2.0" locale="en_US">
  <Request type="Product">

Obviously I fill in the correct info. But I don't know how to get
this to work right. All I know is I need the IP address of the site,
username and pw of course too. But HOW do I accomplish this XML via
HTTP? The only cryptic help I find in the SDK is

POST ...
Content-Type: text/xml


Which I don't get at all..

Did a search on Google with pretty much no luck, may be searching the
wrong terms. Any help is greatly appreciated.
