I want a program, written either in Perl or in Java, that allows me to track seller activity on eBay. The program should use the most current eBay API and store results either as text files in XML format, or, preffered, into a MySQL database.
- read a list of seller id's
- read and store all auctions of this seller
- read and store the bid history on each of the auctions
- read and store all auctions where the seller bids on (as buyer)
With your bid, please state whether you intend to use Perl or Java.
For further clarification, after I have received this question, I want to add that I do not need any GUI functionality - I am absolutely fine with just config-files and command-line-arguments on shell level.
