Web Services Sample Weather Project
The weather project is a web services sample project that submits latitude and longitude coordinates to weather.gov. The remote site returns XML data that eFORMz formats and displays as a graph of predicted daily maximum temperatures for the next seven days for the location submitted in the request.
Web services let you send or receive data from web applications with industry standard POST and GET methods. Connect to remote systems using http or https protocols to get data from remote servers. There is no need for you to write new code or configure a database connection. The web service provider determines the URL syntax, including key value pairs (KVPs) to send. For details, see the eFORMz Web Services Manual.
