    Noob Question on Web Service Integration Link to this post

    I am currently trialling SilverStripe as a possible to replace our current CMS and I was wondering if it is possible to create a form that posts information to a web service and displays the returned information?

    Consider this example:

    I have a CRM in place that we want to use for all communications from the public. The CRM has a web service that we can call, passing in the fields of data from a form, and it returns either an error or a case number.

    So I need to carry out the following steps:

    1. Create the form with the required fields (usually on more than one page)
    2. When SUBMIT is clicked it passes that information, in a pre-defined XML block, to the CRM Web Service.
    3. The CRM returns either an error or a case number. If it returns a case number then display a thank you message and show the case number, but if there is an error then display this on the screen.

    If anyone can think of any way I can do this then I would be incredibly grateful!

    Many thanks.

    PS:

    Our current website is: http://www.swale.gov.uk/
    Out current CRM integration is: http://selfserve.swale.gov.uk/doitonline
    We need to merge the two together. I LOVE working in Local Government!
