I've seen XML applied only on responses from a server (i.e. by JSP or XSP); requests are done always with form's posted data in the http-request, without XML.

My question is: " What is the standard way to send data to a server using XML, and maybe http? "

There is no standard that I know of. One of the many benifits of XML is that it is independant of it's transportation. It doesn't care if you use http, ftp, or xyz.




XML over HTTP is probably popular because you can leverage the backbone of the Internet. And if you need some level of security you can change to HTTPS pretty easily. There are pros and cons to all approaches. It's a question of finding one that makes sense for your application.
