XML Interface


Hi all

I am currently analysing and doing a spec for a realtime interface between JDE and a third party product. The third party software requires an interface into JDE to do credit limit validations since all financial transactions will be held in JDE. The credit limit calculations have been redeveloped (in a bsfn) to fit the customers AR heirarchy. So far (by reading the JDE manuals) the best way I can see of writing the interface to use the existing development is to use XML. So here are my questions;

Is there anyone out there who has had experience in using XML and can you give me some idea of complexity and performance ?

Is there any additional info on XML interfaces other than what JDE has in the Interoperability manual (White Papers etc)?

Is there a better way of doing what we require ?
