Well, Zinc HTTP Components [1], of course:

| json entity |
json := (FileStream fileNamed: '/tmp/foo.json') contentsOfEntireFile.
entity := ZnEntity with: json type: ZnMimeType applicationJson. 
ZnClient post: 'http://example.com/foo' data: entity

This will return a ZnResponse, inspect it for more details.
There are many more options, but this is a simple example to get you started.

The source code should be your friend.
