We are developing online sports betting software. We wish to communicate with the Betfair ([url removed, login to view]) API. Betfair have a "free API" option at [url removed, login to view] to allow developers to integrate with them. It is the exchange API.
We require a solution to allow our website to communicate with the Betfair database API. Our site is written in classic ASP and the data on the remote database is stored in XML format. The communication between the two servers is via a SOAP interface. We would require the solution to be written in classic ASP so as to be able to integrate with our website.
Our plan is to be able to load horseracing events from betfair and then to be able to track their betting prices adding our own margin to their betting prices. This is something that other software programmers have done - so we are by no means the first.
At present we only require a successful logon and a simple request and response from the database server. If you can do a good job for us then there is bound to be more substantial work available on this and other projects on our site.
We would be grateful for a specific reply to our project - not simply a cut and paste response that takes no notice of the specifics of our job.
Feel free to ask questions.
