Python standard library offers tools for HTTP communication (rather easy  
to use) -- see:
http://docs.python.org/library/simplehttpserver.html
http://docs.python.org/library/cgihttpserver.html
http://docs.python.org/library/basehttpserver.html
-- as well as:
http://docs.python.org/library/urllib.html
http://docs.python.org/library/urllib2.html
