can a MVC 3 app execute an Action in a different app on the same server


I have two asp.net applications running on one server, one is MVC-3, the other is not. the MVC application has a POST action which sends an email and returns a JSON object. Can the plain asp.net application somehow execute the action (from server) and receive the JSON object? I guess it just needs to execute a POST somehow?


Found the answer: It is the method HttpWebRequest, used as follows.

string data = "data to post"; HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("put URL here"); // set post headers request.Method = "POST"; request.KeepAlive = true; request.ContentLength = data.Length; request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"; System.IO.StreamWriter writer = new System.IO.StreamWriter(request.GetRequestStream()); writer.Write(data); writer.Close(); writer.Dispose(); // next line posts the data to the URL HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
