I am using Visual Basic DOT NET program (runs on the user's machine - not a web application) to load an XML document into an XML.XMLDOCUMENT object. Here is a sample:
Dim xmldoc As New Xml.XmlDocument
dim m_url as string = "theurl.ofmy.xmlservice?ab
This works fine. However, I need to create a SINGLE POINT OF ENTRY into the XML service. The reason for this is that if everyone that uses my software enters into the XML service by themselves, then I will get charged a per point of entry fee for each user.
The solution I'm looking for is this. I would like to do the xmldoc.load(m_url) call to MY webserver:
When I make this request, my web server knows to retreive the XML from theurl.ofmy.xmlserver along with the parameters that I sent with it and to make the resulting XML available as if I had made the call directly to the actual web server that is hosting the XML service.
I can put this service on a Microsoft/ASP server, or a Linux/Perl server. (those are the only ones that I have available right now, but if I need something special I can deal with that as well.)
For this solution to work for me, I MUST have the ability to populate my Visual Basic XML document object at some point in the process.
I hope that I have been clear here!
Thankyou in advance.
