save input to db then send to a web service and add response from web service to db
I primarily work in an MS environment doing programming in VBScript or C# and have not done much with PHP. I have a client that will consume our web service to test their job applicants. This client is in a LAMP environment. They have a web person that does not know programming so I am trying to help her.
As the title says they will be getting input that needs to be saved to the db, that part I can do. However, they then need to send the info to our servers as http post, where our server will process and respond, and then once they receive the response from our servers they need to save this information.
So my question is in regard to sending the data and reading the response. Does anyone have a good tutorial on this? I found a lot of info on SOAP but our service is not a SOAP service I found some other info on cURL and they do have cURL support enabled on their server, they also have json support enabled
