  • Reading Data from yahoo services

    Hi everybody,

    I need some advice on how to retrieve and parse data from yahoo finance using YQL.

    I understood how to read and parse data from a file whose location is known a-priori, but i have some trouble in understanding how the application could consume services from the web (xml or json response).

    Any ideas or examples the could help me are well appreciated,

    thank you!

    If you already have a service which is working i.e. reading data from yahoo finance and then parsing and/or writing it to the target database. Then you have two options:

    1. You can use existing services and implement your own reader and writer.
    2. You can use existing service as is by using TaskletAdapter.

    Let me know if this helps?
