Sending commands via SPML to Portals UME...

I am attempting to find a way (ideally without using XI) to send Indentity management information/commands to the Portals UME.

SAP's Security and Identity Management .pdf document mentions that I can use the following URL address for servicing the SPML:


I guess I just wanted to ask whether anyone has used this method and whether there are any surprises in store. Also, I'm not entirely sure, yet, how I can fire off this SPML to this address so any advice would be most welcome. One source has informed me that I need to use the Class/interface CL_HTTP_CLIENT, but another was talking another language to me mentioned in SAAJ and SOAP messages. As you can see I do need advice.

    Hi Gary

    I think the basic idea is to send an appropriately formatted XML file to the SPML service. This could be sent from anything, including an ABAP class...

    I don't suppose you know of an example of this that may exist in a demo program, do you.

    I am aware of the method CL_HTP_CLIENT=>CREATE_BY_URL but I'm entirely sure this can be used for this purpose.
