I know that eosio has http plugins, which is why I'm thinking that maybe a http library is embedded to the eosio.hpp and that I can use it internally to send http requests. Is this possible?

My goal is simply to notify an external server whenever my multi_index table is updated. Therefore, I need to make a post request within the smart contract. Is this possible without including external http libraries? and if not, how can I include and link to the library using the eosio-cpp command line tool?

It turns out we can't, because HTTP is not deterministic. Check this discussion.
