A while ago we created a very small desktop application that receives financial news from our server and stock quote data from yahoo server.
Application works fine, but the reponse time of a query for financial news takes too long.
a) We are looking for a programmer to improve the query response for news (i agree with any better programmation/language)
b) make the application compatible when a proxy server is used.
- The news is supplied in XLM files on our server and automatically stored (using another application) in our mysql database.
- The application (VB6) queries the requested news directly from het mysql server.
- Retrievement of yhoo quotes behind a proxyserver is a problem which need to be solved as well.
Hereby a picture of present application.
