There are a couple of people trying to use ezRETS programmatically in applications they are writing. This is opposed to doing it as an end user using Excel, Access, or another ODBC aware app.
To help with that, I’ve started a wiki page with usage examples.
Right now, I’ve got two simple PHP examples and a simple C/C++ example. I’d like to show a few more languages. If anyone would care to contribute some simple sample code in other languages, just throw it on the ezRETS mailing list or e-mail me. Also, if you are doing a piece of functionality not shown in an existing language sample, we’d be interested in that as well.
That being said, in general, I think going directly against libRETS in your programs instead of ezRETS via ODBC is the better long term direction. There are, of course, always exceptions. Also, a downside to going with libRETS right now is that libRETS is currently C++ only. We’re looking into changing that.
