XML help with LotusScript

Posted on 2004-11-15

Not sure how to start on this project, I was hoping someone could point me in the correct direction.

What I need to do is read an XML stream into a LotusScript agent and populate a database.

I envision a button on a website, that will do a post to a URL (?OPenAgent), then I would have the agent read in the xml stream and parse it, so that I can build a form in a database and then display the database form in a browser (always IE).

Does the above scenario seem correct? Are there any examples of a LotusScript agent reading from a post?

    You are right in doing a post and making the action attribute pointing to an openagent. There are two ways you can handle it :

    1. The full stream of XML you can parse it using string operations (which might become complex)

    2. Use Microsoft XML parser to do the job: something in this lines:

    Although this example doesn't talk about ur requirement, it might give you some ideas:
