PHP & .NET
PHP & .NET
He just told me that the .NET team just advised that they will jack their fees because of the added difficulties to code in .NET to interact with PHP ... They claim that as a MSW house, they normally develop only MSW solutions and having to make changes to their code just so that we can fetch data from them is not good business and so, they require more $$$
Now, call me stupid but, are they pulling his chain? Do you really need to do special coding in .NET to produce XML documents or whatever the response is out of your WSDL?
I some how feel that they are just trying to scare my "friend" out of PHP so that they get the added business of developing the application he has entrusted me with.
I know, this is not entirely PHP and it is borderline "cry me a river" but I really am looking for clarity on the valid or not valid case of ".NET" gets complicated when pushing data for platforms other than ".NET" itself. I have never asked for special treatment, just for documentation on what they send and how it is structured or mapped.
I just cannot see how this could be possible but figure I ask.
The good thing about not knowing is the opportunity to learn - Yours truly, 2008.
