  • API / XML, plug-in development


    I would like to get the knowledge to develop a plug-in myself. The plug-in will be comparable to the Quickbooks plug-in (thus accounting software).

    What I have learned so far is that I need to master XML and webservices but I think I do miss something.

    The XML looks like a universal communication protocol which, I suppose, both applications (3dcart and the Quickbooks variant) do support. However, to initiate the connection between the two applications I think I need to make some script with a programming language like Visual Basics, PHP or something similar.

    So my question is, am I right, and if so, what programming language is recommended to make such a plug-in (or 'app' as 3dcart calls it now).

    Thanks in advance for any tips!
