I have a client who wishes to automate their order processing system for their online business. presently they download reports from their business frontend and upload them manually to their shipper.
Both systems can use XML and a precursory look at the document tags suggests a simple XSLT transform should be able to translate the tags fairly simply. I was thinking of using Zope to setup a server that will get the orders from the website, transform them, and then upload them to the shipper. I built Zope3 last night and went to bed... In the morning I tried to build the zope-xml* pluggins. However they start building python 2.3.5-1, despite python 2.4.x that was built for zope3. I'm fairly certain I can't have more then one version of python but maybe I'm mistaken. I didn't want to deal with it when I woke up so I stopped the builds. Just wondering if anyone has any familiarity with Zope, its pitfalls and merits, or if there is an easier way to do what I described above. My client doesn't care about keeping a local copy of the orders but I want to for error control and checking purposes. I was going to use xmlcatmgr for this purpose. I would setup two catalogs one for raw and processed orders. At this point I care more about keeping each order processing unit if you will in its own little compartment, perhaps a simple db by date would be more in order with XML as the content. any kind of pointers would be appreciated as this is my first real task building a system that does something real... -brian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
