example - send xml to web service php




send/post xml file using curl command line (6)

How can I send/post an xml file to a local server http://localhost:8080 using curl from the command line?

What command should I use?


From the manpage, I believe these are the droids you are looking for:

-F/--form <name=content>

(HTTP) This lets curl emulate a filled-in form in which a user has pressed the submit button. This causes curl to POST data using the Content-Type multipart/form-data according to RFC2388. This enables uploading of binary files etc. To force the 'content' part to be a file, prefix the file name with an @ sign.

Example, to send your password file to the server, where 'password' is the name of the form-field to which /etc/passwd will be the input:

curl -F [email protected]/etc/passwd www.mypasswords.com

So in your case, this would be something like
curl -F [email protected]/some/file/on/your/local/disk http://localhost:8080


Here's how you can POST XML on Windows using curl command line on Windows. Better use batch/.cmd file for that:

curl -i -X POST -H "Content-Type: text/xml" -d             ^
"^<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\" ?^>                ^
    ^<Transaction^>                                           ^
        ^<SomeParam1^>Some-Param-01^</SomeParam1^>            ^
        ^<Password^>SomePassW0rd^</Password^>                 ^
        ^<Transaction_Type^>00^</Transaction_Type^>           ^
        ^<CardHoldersName^>John Smith^</CardHoldersName^>     ^
        ^<DollarAmount^>9.97^</DollarAmount^>                 ^
        ^<Card_Number^>4111111111111111^</Card_Number^>       ^
        ^<Expiry_Date^>1118^</Expiry_Date^>                   ^
        ^<VerificationStr2^>123^</VerificationStr2^>          ^
        ^<CVD_Presence_Ind^>1^</CVD_Presence_Ind^>            ^
        ^<Reference_No^>Some Reference Text^</Reference_No^>  ^
        ^<Client_Email^>[email protected]^</Client_Email^>       ^
        ^<Client_IP^>123.4.56.7^</Client_IP^>                 ^
        ^<Tax1Amount^>^</Tax1Amount^>                         ^
        ^<Tax2Amount^>^</Tax2Amount^>                         ^
    ^</Transaction^>                                          ^
" "http://localhost:8080"

If you are using curl on Windows:

curl -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -d "<?xml version="""1.0""" encoding="""UTF-8""" standalone="""yes"""?><message><sender>Me</sender><content>Hello!</content></message>" http://localhost:8080/webapp/rest/hello

If you have multiple headers then you might want to use the following:

curl -X POST --header "Content-Type:application/json" --header "X-Auth:AuthKey" --data @hello.json Your_url

You can use this command:

curl -X POST --header 'Content-Type: multipart/form-data' --header 'Accept: application/json' --header 'Authorization: <<Removed>>' -F [email protected]"/home/xxx/Desktop/customers.json"  'API_SERVER_URL' -k 

You can using option --data with file.

Write xml content to a file named is soap_get.xml and using curl command to send request:

curl -X POST --header "Content-Type:text/xml;charset=UTF-8" --data @soap_get.xml your_url
