I have to build a process that will receive a http request from a sender with a XML content type. What I need to do is receive the request and do some actions once I receive the request, such as writing the data that is encoded in the request into a database.
A sender is going to send a request to my process, what I expect in it will be the process's server URL, and Authentication info such as username and password, and some data such as a first and last name, D.O.B and Email address. My process will read the
XML and insert the data into a database and send an email to the email address within the data portion of the request.
Where do I start? Do I build a simple HTTP server. I have always been the one to be sending a request via http web request and getting a response. This time I have to be the one receiving the request and then doing something with it.
