REST, at the most basic level, requires only few commands in 4D
HTTP Request and related features
JSON Parse and related features
or, if I may turn the question: is their another language (C, JS,
PHP, etc) you would feel more comfortable with?
the question might be better asked like
how would you do this (insert code here) in 4D?
This is a good question. I guess I should explain myself better. There are two things I am trying to do:
Our website orders should integrate directly into 4D. So I presume I would have to have 4D HTTP GET the necessary fields from our website correct? Or we could export the orders some how from online, maybe xml, and import them into 4d?
Integrate a wordpress plugin called TaxJar which automatically calculates the necessary sales tax for our sales (and has a REST api). Now, if that doesn’t make sense and 4D can’t query this plugin in that sort of manner, then how can I create my own database of sales tax rates that will apply to different orders based on different zip codes.
Also for clarification, I am self taught in Python. But other than that my code experience is minimal.
