Hi Val not at this time no.
What sort of data is it? It is possible to store the same data in a form? You could access form data from the API.
Well he said web app and you cant access web apps via API yet.
Yes I know, that is why I asked if you could store the same data in a form which you do have access to.
Staff listings - not really.
Thanx for getting back to me.
Is it possible to have web app listings converted to an xml page so that other websites can use this as a feed to update their websites?
Does anyone know how real estate websites list with 3rd party websites?
Liam: Think outside the box, form (storage) are essentially a database, you can store information in it and get it out whenever you need it, just store what you need into a form and access it and get the info out like a database.
OntheBall: What XML format is required? Where are you wanting to export the data too? There are thousands of XML "formats".
Always thinking out the box, but that is not going to be very practicle at all, and the construction for that is pretty wasteful. I personally would not ever scope your sollution, I know what you mean but never would use that method.
You cant also then on top of that re-scope an existing project to a point where its an inefective managed approach.
@OnTheBallWebDesigns - No, sadly.
I have asked BC to have modules render in other file types as it would give a lot of control and options but no word on if that can be done any time soon.
BC are also working on new web app stuff but thats a year off.
That is their own custom XML feed, to do something similar you would have to generate your own (public) XML via querying the BC API and then formatting it into your own XML format. You would be essentially making a public API for (your site's) BC API.
This is not an ideal solution and more of a "if you really must get it to work solution" as inside the BC admin tool the description wouldn't be easily readable and have to be saved in a strict format (JSON).
To generate the XML feed (at least a public one) you would have to host externally some function / script that queries the BC API and formats as required.
Nothing out of the box for any of this.
