Append data to a POST NSURLRequest

How do you append data to an existing

POST
NSURLRequest
? I need to add a new parameter
userId=2323
.

Answer

If you don't wish to use 3rd party classes then the following is how you set the post body...

NSURL *aUrl = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.apple.com/"];
NSMutableURLRequest *request = [NSMutableURLRequest requestWithURL:aUrl
                                         cachePolicy:NSURLRequestUseProtocolCachePolicy
                                     timeoutInterval:60.0];

[request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];
NSString *postString = @"company=Locassa&quality=AWESOME!";
[request setHTTPBody:[postString dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];

NSURLConnection *connection= [[NSURLConnection alloc] initWithRequest:request 
                                                             delegate:self];

Simply append your key/value pair to the post string
