I have gotten the ASP code to transmit and receive XML data from UPS without using SOAP. Now I would like to be able to do this with Java.

The ASP code is as follows:
Set objSrvHTTP = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
objSrvHTTP.open "POST", "https://wwwcie.ups.com/ups.app/xml/Rate",false
objSrvHTTP.SetRequestHeader "Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
objSrvHTTP.send (strMessage)
strResponseMessage = objSrvHTTP.responseText
intHTTPStatusCode = objSrvHTTP.status

Is there Java code that I can use that is fairly simple and straightforward like this ASP code? The data will be sent from an SSL on an internet server. I will not be entering information through prompts and can not use SOAP.

Thanks for your help,
