glendango Posted July 19, 2018 Share Posted July 19, 2018 (edited) Before i get slaughtered on stack i wanted to reask a question i cant get an answer to....sorry. XML Project. What is the pro way of handling xml data feed from a crm which i will eventually display the content on a searchable website….? Do you use simplexml or do you dump the ftp file into a database and then call what you need with php/html? Do you update a mysql database with a cron job / php script ? If so i want to overwrite the old data with the fresh data, is this possible? Why do we use simplexml? I ve tested it today and i like the way you can extract what you want from the .xml file ..so if its that good... Do I need a database at all if my script can display the raw xml without the need for a db..? What ive done so far is : Use simplexml on some basic files which worked fine but as soon I started using a ‘real’ xml file I coudnt get anything out of it.(currently asking feeder what is going on, waiting for answer) I cant find any straight advice on what pro devs do.. ive seen a lot on json as well which I like but all the crm houses still use xml feeds… Thanks in advance.
