I have a Java applet which gets the GPS data from a Boost phone, then fills a SOAP envelope and passes it to my ASP.NET 2.0 web service. but I am looking for a solution that allows me to do away with the SOAP web service. I'm having trouble hosting the service, getting the SQL Server database running and the NHIbernate working again.
Please tell me if this will work.
I modify the Java applet to package the data in one long string, perhaps 100 characters, for example:
Can I send that string as a parameter to a website I have yet to write?
The Java applet could issue a call over HTTP such as:
It's just a string. What's the format for an optional parameter?
Anyway, you get the point. I would send it to my simple website which will parse it and write it to a database or file.
Will that work? If not, why not? And what technology might allow me to do this?
