Hello and SIMS data via Web Services
I've just joined - I don't know why it's taken so long!
I taught ICT and some Maths for 26 years and left the profession last year (early retirement - I was neither pushed nor did I fall off the end!)
I have been doing a little work for a few schools and I have developed an externally hosted web application for one. We now need to be able to interrogate the SIMS data.
I know that SIMS is based on SQL Server 2005 (of which I have some experience) and that SQL Server 2005 has Native XML Web Services (or at least the full version does - not Express).
I am interested to know first of all if there is anything about a SIMS installation that prevents using the Web Services capability of SQL Server 2005 and, secondly, whether anyone has successfully done such a thing.
Glad to be here.
