Net::HTML#post_form with ASP

Hello,

I’ve been trying to use Net::HTML.post_form to POST to a .asp file.

url = URI.parse("http://www.ascca.com/findashop/findashopdetail.asp")
res = Poster.post_form(url, { "id" => '1' } )
puts res.body

This does not work with ASP pages but works fine with other pages.

Here’s the error i get:

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error (missing
operator) in query expression ‘[ID]=’.

I believe it has something to do with it being urlencoded, but i’m not
exactly sure.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ricardo Amorim

Just a note: The Poster class is a Net::HTTP subclass. I was using it
to test the code. You could just use Net::HTTP instead.

I think you are running into this:

I suspect the fix in that thread will get you going again.

Hope that helps.

Hello,

The fix did not work.I still get the same error. There is some bug here.

I’ve tested an app i coded last month and it still works:

url = URI.parse(“http://translate.google.com/translate_t”)
g_res = Net::HTTP::post_form(url, { ‘text’ => “#{string}”, ‘langpair’
=> “#{from_lang}|#{to_lang}” } )
p g_res.body

Perhaps it has something to do with the file type you POST to?
(php/cfm/asp)

The problem is that the receiving end seems to be expecting id in the
query string: request.querystring(“id”) for GET vs. request.form(“id”)
for POST in ASP.
