Basically, I think that I can't, but I would be very happy to be proven wrong.

I am generating an HTML menu dynamically in PHP, adding one item for each current user, so that I get something like <a href="process_user.php?user=<user>>, but I have a preference for POST over GET.

Is there a way to pass the information as a POST parameter, rather than GET from a clickable HREF link?

I am not allowed to use JavaScript.

It looks like Rob is on to something with "You could use a button instead of an anchor and just style the button to look like a link. That way you could have your values in hidden fields inside the same form to be sent via POST"



You could use a form styled as a link. No JavaScript is required:

<form action="/do/stuff.php" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="user_id" value="123" />
    <button>Go to user 123</button>


button {
    border: 0;
    padding: 0;
    display: inline;
    background: none;
    text-decoration: underline;
    color: blue;
button:hover {
    cursor: pointer;

According to the docs of route object, you have access to a $route object from your components, which exposes what you need. In this case

//from your component
console.log(this.$route.query.test) // outputs 'yay'

The URL simply cannot be reached. Either the URL is wrong, or the DNS server couldn't resolve the hostname. Try a simple connect with a well-known URL to exclude one and other, e.g.

InputStream response = new URL("").openStream();
// Consume response.

Update as per the comments, you're required to use a proxy server for HTTP connections. You need to configure that in the Java side as well. Add the following lines before any attempt to connect to an URL.

System.setProperty("http.proxyHost", "");
System.setProperty("http.proxyPort", "8080");

It suffices to do this only once during runtime.

I think I have it with:

    catch (WebException ex)

        if (ex.Status == WebExceptionStatus.ProtocolError)
            int statusCode = (int) ((HttpWebResponse) ex.Response).StatusCode;
            listenerContext.Response.StatusCode = statusCode;
            listenerContext.Response.StatusDescription = ex.Message;
            log("WARNING", uri, "WebException/ProtocolError: " + ex.GetType() + " - " + ex.Message);
            log("ERROR", uri, "WebException - " + ex.GetType() + " - " + ex.Message);

This what worked for me

fetch("", {
  method: 'POST',
  headers: new Headers({
             'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded', // <-- Specifying the Content-Type
  body: "param1=value1&param2=value2" // <-- Post parameters
.then((response) => response.text())
.then((responseText) => {
.catch((error) => {
