Can a get request to a web service be created to consume a XML file like a post does. I have created a service that accepts a XML file okay if done using post but as the request is not being used to update or create items on the server, but rather only to get data for multiple items being requested, I am not sure that using post is proper. If I just change the service from post to get, it does not work. The XML file may contain multiple items that inventory is being requested for and where each item is further described in the XML file as to the warehouse location and other criteria. I am using apache wink. Thank You

No. By definition, GET requests do not contain a body.

Thank you Bear. I thought I had read that somewhere. You saved me much time from further researching the problem.
