I am actually
developing a computerised online payment system ( something like GIRO). In my
system, I allow customer to pay their bills ( for example Insurance bill, water
bill, electricity bill and etc) through GIRO. Therefore, I need to read from the
database of all the service providers and the data they provided are in
different format. Therefore, what I get from my research is that I can use EDI
to format all the data from different service providers. I choose XML as a
language for developing EDI.
But, I will be using
Visual Basic to write my application with embedded SQL statement. So, how can I
integrate XML into my system. I heard that XML can only be integrated with JAVA.
Is that really so?
Thank you for your
precious information. I really hope that someone can actually answer my
question. Thank YOU.
