Hi list, I have a request from a client to sync an accounting software running on a PC under Windows 10 and a database on a remote server. Below is a short description of the solution I have imagined, and I would welcome opinions & critics from other list members, as I'm not really familiar with Win 10.
- I will build a small standalone app with LC, that will launch at start up along with Win 10 and will keep running in the background. Let's name it "myApp". - some programmable tasks in the accounting software will create xml files in a local directory when some actions are performed, for instance : entering a new customer or a new order. - every 5 min or so, myApp will check the directory for possible new files, and will send their content to the remote server as parameters of a POST request. If no file is found, the POST request will be sent to the server anyway. - on the server, a script will be triggered and will enter the parameters of the request (the xml data) into the DB, and will return data relative to possible events that happened on the server, if any, in the form of xml. - myApp will write the returned xml data as a file in a directory on the PC, and another programmable task in the software will read the file and import the data. My main concern is the app running constantly in the background. Is it safe ? Is it Win 10 compatible ? Is there anything I miss ? Thanks in advance. jbv _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list email@example.com Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
