The Seaside GUI bit I presume you can easily pick up in Seaside 
tutorials (the book) or whatever.

Making POSTs from Squeak can be done using various means - Curl (you 
need the plugin though) and HTTPSocket (old "standard" stuff) probably 
all can do it - but you also have HttpClient:


I have used that package to build a rather advanced HTTP robot for a 
customer and it does POSTS etc quite handily - even through HTTPS using 
stunnel as a relay.
