Applies to:
  • Apimo Webservice 2.0 (apimo.com)
  • PHP v5.5
What?
This is an article on how I connected to the Apimo WebService. The Apimo Webservice is an API provided by apimo.com and requires a server request over HTTPS using the GET method.

Why?
This was quite difficult to connect to and to determine what was wrong with each step of the development as the error messages were somewhat vague. I thought I'd quickly write this article so I don't have to spend so much time on it again.

Note that the below examples, demonstrate a script on a Non-SSL-Enabled host.

How?

Applies to:
  • TravelPort Universal API
  • PHP 4 or 5
  • cURL
What?
An article on how to resolve errors and setup a standard ping request using the TravelPort Universal API. This is to be achieved using PHP as the server-side programming language and cURL, a sub-component of PHP that allows you to send and receive requests as the server (as opposed to the client device).

Why?
Yes there's documentation online that TravelPort provide you with but it didn't help. The error I'm going to address has to do with getting the latest schemas but as I couldn't find anything using Google regarding these errors or how to set up a basic ping request, I thought I'd write this article.

How?
Using PHP and cURL, here is the full script for a standard ping request. Before you say it doesn't work, it has to be updated every time a new schema is introduced to the system. See my errors section for how you can resolve this.

What?
A quick article on how to create a middleware script which accepts the values from a submitted HTML form and sends it to a server on another domain for processing. This applies to Linux Apache MySQL and PHP (LAMP) setups.

Why?
A customer wanted to connect their Mobile App to a third-party API. The third-party only accepts requests from a static and permitted IP address. If the end-user were to make the request, then their own IP address would be the one checked against, and it just wouldn't be manageable to add every new user's IP address to their service. The request has to come from a permitted server with a single IP address.

How?
It's likely that you already know how to submit a HTML form to a server via your Mobile application so the following will only document the process of sending data under the server IP address. We're going to use a PHP script with the cURL function to receive and send the data. cURL is a standard feature on most LAMP setups. If not you can install it from here: http://curl.haxx.se/download.html
