Recently there were some mentions of getting XML using regular http requests in contrast to SOAP ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOAP ) .

On the web or intranet there are many XML resources that can be consumed using any http client .

Those resources can be a simple links like this:

or

Web Services that can be consumed using regular http requests like this:

In program Y_R_EITAN_TEST_40_05 (attached) I demonstrate a program that use
http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml .

The main tools in this program are:

– CL_HTTP_CLIENT : get the XML from the server .
– CL_IXML : Parse the xml .

The result of those is an internal table that is presented using cl_salv_table .

The program assume that you need a proxy to get to the server so please enter your proxy info .
