Need to write a server type app to respond to requests
Posted on 2006-11-23
I would like to write an app that does vehicle tracking. I have an idea that I could send the data over wireless internet, maybe gprs at this stage. The app, written in .net 2005, will send data to a web service at a given interval.
I need to be able to "poll" my vehicle and get it to return the vehicle position etc back, so thinking I may need the app to do some "servery" type things. I haven't done much in this area before, but I am guessing that if the tracking app runs its own sort of web server, the person or whatever that is polling this vehicle would then consume the service running on the vehicle?
Or am I way off!! LOL
Looking forward to hearing all the ideas!!
