    Default newbie question on XML

    We are currently collecting user information via the web and storing it in our database. We have a client that wants us to send them the customer information via XML at the same time.<BR><BR>The client gave us a specification sheet that included a DTD. Part of the spec sheet reads: "the partner interface supports the message transport protocol HTTPS fro delivery of XML messages". And, "... messages are sent to the corporate data processing center as the body of a validly formed HTTPS POST message to the following URL:"<BR><BR>My first question is whether using https requires anything special?<BR><BR>Do we have to use SOAP to send the messages? I found this code in an article:<BR>Set xmlhttp = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")<BR> "POST", "http://ik/Biztalk/receive.asp", False<BR>xmltext = "&#060;magazine&#062;MIND&#060;/magazine&#062;"<BR>Set xmldom = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")<BR>xmldom.loadXML xmltext<BR>xmlhttp.send xmldom<BR><BR>Would something like that work instead of SOAP? If so, is there any way to get the data into the xmltext variable besides building a long string? Is there a way to pass the recordset and a DTD to an object and let it format the string?<BR><BR>We also have to check the response for error messages and it seems like a saw some code to do that. Maybe something like "errmsg = xmlhttp.send xmldom"? <BR><BR>The DTD the client supplied had various information for customers, orders, billing, etc. We would only be using the customer part of it. Can we just ignore the other parts of the DTD?<BR><BR>Sorry for so many questions. I&#039;ve read several articles and they&#039;ve helped but I&#039;m still not sure about some things.<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Dan D.
