I was asked to build an application which will be called from a existing program.
I have to do 3 main things:
1) Receive a parameter via command line. (Somewhere in the existing program, I will be called "MYPROGRAM 1234").
2) With the received parameter (1234 in the case) I need to retrieve data in tables within a local MSSQL database.
3) With the data retrieved from tables I need to consume a Web Service passing formatted XML data.
I have Delphi 2005 Professional installed but never made an application with such kind of complexity.
Where do I start?
What kind of application will It be?
Is there an article or example?
Need help from some patient guy. It will be many questions...
