Hello,

I must retrieve a product List from the server of a company via a web
service.
I need to show the data on a website (php).

i retrieve the xml file from the webservice and save it into my
webserver but when i want to show the product node, it is coded.

according of the webservice documentation, it's a base64-encoded zip file
.

How can i do to decode and /or unzip the node of the xml file ???

Thank you for help

Have you tried to use the php function base64_decode()?

The encoded content is a zip-file. Try to save the content to a temporary file and then use the PHP  zip_* functions to read/manipulate it.
