How to connect to RETS MLS Data with ColdFusion?
Posted on 2007-11-13
A client's MLS company offers realty listing information in the form of RETS xml data.
I've done several xml-based sites, usually reading the xml data into a mySQL database, but from what I am seeing, RETS is a bit different than a usual RSS feed, or visible XML file.
I am looking for sample code, or a UDF / CFC... or a decent tutorial... on connecting to RETS with ColdFusion.
Ideally I could read the data into a mySQL database once per day, and run my own searches and display templates against my familiar cf/db format.
So.. what I'd *really* like, is the code - or an explanation of building same - to read from the RETS server into a SQL insert query. From there I'd be home free.
