Sample usage:


' runs a map with an id of TEST

Dim request As System.Net.WebRequest = System.Net.WebRequest.Create("")

request.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password", "domain")

Using writer As New StringWriter()

 dataTable.DataSet.WriteXml(writer, XmlWriteMode.WriteSchema)

End Using

Dim xml As String = writer.ToString()

request.ContentLength = xml.Length

request.ContentType = "text/xml"

Using reqStream As Stream = request.GetRequestStream()

 reqStream.Write(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(xml), 0, xml.Length)

End Using

Dim response As System.Net.WebResponse = request.GetResponse()

Dim result As String = String.Empty

Using responseStream As New System.IO.StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream())

 Dim result As String = responseStream.ReadToEnd()

End Using

Dim doc As New XmlDocument()


Return doc
