So, on the server, you need something that'll read of an IPC message 
queue, and get Cocoon to do some processing, transforming some files. 
Well, once the file is on the server, you don't really need HTTP post. 
So you could simply do:


use LWP::UserAgent;

my $userAgent=LWP::UserAgent->new();
my $response=$userAgent->get("http://localhost:8080/cocoon/your_url");
open(out, ">file.txt");
print out $response->content;

Thus, you've asked perl to go get a page from Cocoon by HTTP, and then 
written it to disk. The pipeline can just look for the file where the 
FTP put it.

If you do want to post by HTTP, here's some code:


use LWP 5.64;

my $content = "<xml>Some XML</xml>";
my $request = HTTP::Request->new("POST");


my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
my $response = $ua->request($request);

if ($response->is_success) {
  print $response->content,"\n";
} else {
  print "ERROR: ",$response->status_line,"\n";

Does this help?
