I have the followin anunciate:

"The response from TransMaster will not be using the XML-RPC response format, but instead, will be sending back an XML stream of the object(s) requested. For example, the request is made for a credit card authorization using the XML-RPC in the above example request.
The response would look something like:

<transaction>
<identifier>101</identifier>
<result>authorized</result>
</transaction>

"

My doubt is: ... then... I can use XML-RPC to communicate with TransMaster ?? or I must use https connection directly with it , and send it a xml string, and parser the response ??? It's possible use xml-rpc to send and use a customize parser to extracts the information of the response ??

Can helme anyone ? Thanks

Well I think that's a design choice that you will have to make. Whatever it is, just document it.

Caveat: I do not have access to the assignment - I've just seen the related traffic here on the forum.

Advice: Have you used the Search facility in this forum and exhausted the previous threads that you get when you search for "XML-RPC" or "TransMaster"?

I can use XML-RPC to communicate with TransMaster ??
According to the XML stream of the object(s)..." thread, the documentation states that the response is not an XML-RPC response. So technically speaking you cannot use XML-RPC to communicate with TransMaster because it does not follow the XML-RPC protocol - it is in fact a custom protocol that happens to use a XML-RPC request format. See the end of XML stream of the object(s)..." for some related links I posted if you need some background on the referenced technologies - however don't get too sidetracked by this information - this is an exam on distributed component architecture, it is not a J2EE developer exam.

must use https connection directly with it , and send it a xml string
I hope that the requirements mandate the use of measures to protect the sensitive credit card data - and TLS (Transport Layer Security ) would be an option that does not interfere with the higher level protocol.

Jose,
Sorry, but I have to caution that you may be asking too much about the assignment. Please use your discretion.

Thank you,
