Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
How the heck am I supposed to do this? We have no access to install any components on our server. The servers are Windows 2003.
I would need something that would grab the latest XML every 5 minutes and then parse it to something for our website.
I have no knowledge of any of this, so any help is appreciated.
If so then it is a pretty simple process of coding (Simple is a relative term remember:) ) an application to do the following.
Log onto the news server
grab the latest messages
parse the NewsML
squirt it into your pages
The specifics of which will depend on your exact requirements.
The sensible language for you to use, as you are on a Windows server, is ASP or .Net, but I have no experience of those. Personally I would code it in Perl where 90% of the modules you would need already exist.
I hope this help rather than confuses
It's XML/RDF based and handles all the XML, NewsML news feeds etc.
