hi karthick,
difference between HTTP-Post and HTTP-Get?

As their names imply, both HTTP GET and HTTP POST use HTTP as their underlying protocol. Both of these methods encode request parameters as name/value pairs in the HTTP request.

The GET method creates a query string and appends it to the script's URL on the server that handles the request.

The POST method creates a name/value pairs that are passed in the body of the HTTP request message.

Best Regards.
