[SLUG] Re: [UNIX ECI] [Job #675] N:The BAS & XML (fwd) TAX office SMOKESCREEN
re original Tax office fax
THE TAX OFFICE IS STRETCHING THE TRUTH
They have not denied the fact that the XML is not used for the web
transfer, this being an encrypted batch file,
requiring you to install their MICROSOFT WINDOWS or Mac software to
locally serve the XML
further if you read the XML interface specification
you will find it is illogical.
XML implies open systems interface used over the web!
THE TAX OFFICE DOES NOT PROVIDE
A OPEN SYSTEMS INTERFACE
WHAT'S WORSE I DO NOT THINK THEY UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE !!!!!!
for open systems....
they should release the specification of the batch file,
and logically also the tests to verify the data
before a batch file is returned.
not hide behind a smoke screen saying they are XML compliant
When they do not logically use the concept.
