  • ASP.NET 2.0 and XML web application

    I hope I explain this correctly. I am a complete beginner to XML and web services etc. My boss is aware I'm new to this field but has asked me to investigate.

    Basically, my employer has asked me to develop some financial calculators that will run via the company website. How I envisage this working, is to have an area on the company website that starts off with a data capture screen. At this point, I want one of two possibilities.

    1. A html form with various fields to fill out and submit. When this form is submitted, I'd like it to create an XML file of the data captured, and feed this into the variables in the ASP.NET 2.0 VB source code.

    2. The other option will be to feed an XML file directly from a local file on an users machine.

    Once this is done, I want this data to be available for use in various financial calculators such as mortgage calculations etc. on the site, until which point the user leaves the site area (thus clearing the data from memory), or chooses to refresh the data with different data.

    Does anybody have any resources I can read up on how to do this, or can anybody recommend a good book with working examples that I can read?

    Hope I've been clear as to what I want. As I'm new to this area of web programming, I'm not sure if I have been clear.

    Many thanks in advance
    Cheers, Steve

    XML will work or passing the objects them selves between pages. Like a datatable.

      Yeah, one thought I had was feeding the form information into a temporary database and creating a recordset of the data required. I'm pretty new to server side scripting, but I think I could manage to have a form upload data to a database, then to query that database record. It's just doing it for the first time I was worried about.

      The reason I mentioned XML is that my boss said that our clients could be supplied with XML files from one of our providers/suppliers, so I thought if I could write an online application that can use those files, I wouldn't need a database.

      If anyone can recommend a tutorial on setting up this sort of thing, or even a good book that shows you, I would appreciate it.
