Java Web Services API, however I can’t run a JVM on my server,
I’m trying to use some data from a PlanPlusOnline account. They only provide a java web services API. The server for the site where the data will be used does not allow me to install Tomcat (edit: or a JVM for that matter). I’m not going to lie, I am a Java software engineer, and I do some web work on the side. I’m not familiar with web services or servlets, but I was willing to give it a shot. I’d much rather they have JSON access to the data, but as far as I know they don’t. Any ideas?
EDIT: to clarify. The web service provided by planplusonline is Java based. I am trying to access the data from this web service without using Java. I believe this is possible now, but I need to do more research. Anyone who can help point me in the right direction is appreciated.
To follow up with jodonnell’s comment, a Web service connection can be made in just about any server-side language. It is just that the API example they provided was in Java probably because PlanPlusOnline is written in Java. If you have a URL for the service, and an access key, then all you really need to do is figure out how to traverse the XML returned. If you can’t do Java, then I suggest PHP because it could be already installed, and have the proper modules loaded. This link might be helpful:
