I need to send data to another company via XML.  I have a PC web server
running Tomcat, Java Virtual Machine and the other company's software which
when it receives a valid request will fire the data via the internet to the
company and then receive data back.  This web server is connected to our
I-series via our network.

We are a company which deals primarily with I-series and we're all RPG
programmers so certain terminology about PC's, the internet, ports etc are
lost on us.  I have no problem creating the XML file from the data we keep
on the I-series, which I use RPG to do.  However I am lost as to how to then
get this web server to send my file to the other company.  I have been told
by the other company that their software accepts these methods:
*       HTTP Post/Get 
*       CGI Strings 
*       XML Stream
These mean nothing to me but, I am sure that I must be able to use RPG API's
or use some I-series software to kick this all off.  Please help! Can anyone
point me in the right direction or know of a way of doing this?
