Request XML Data #869
« on: November 21, 2007, 06:37:38 pm »
I am trying to write an interface for the EZBridge (IP/Insteon) using GSD/Ruby.

all of the commands to/from the EZBridge are in XML format.

I noticed, in the Datagrid Commands, seems like XML parsing is already supported.

I searched the wiki for XML with no hits.

Does anyone know how to use these commands and, if possible, give a 'sample'?

attempting simple commands first.. I'd like to send an XML msg and receive an XML msg back (most of the time, multiple XML msgs back)

Here's a sample xml msg I send to IP:port
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<command>SndIns
<parameter1>0x0B</parameter1>
<parameter2>0x71</parameter2>
<parameter3>0xAB</parameter3>
<parameter4>0x0F</parameter4>
<parameter5>0x11</parameter5>
<parameter6>0xFF</parameter6>
</command>

and the message(s) I get back:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Response> SndIns
<Parameter1>0X2</Parameter1>
<Parameter2>0X62</Parameter2>
<Parameter3>0XB</Parameter3>
<Parameter4>0X71</Parameter4>
<Parameter5>0XAB</Parameter5>
<Parameter6>0XF</Parameter6>
<Parameter7>0X11</Parameter7>
<Parameter8>0XFF</Parameter8>
<Parameter9>0X6</Parameter9>
</Response>

then...

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Response> InsStdMsg
<Parameter1>0X2</Parameter1>
<Parameter2>0X50</Parameter2>
<Parameter3>0XB</Parameter3>
<Parameter4>0X71</Parameter4>
<Parameter5>0XAB</Parameter5>
<Parameter6>0X5</Parameter6>
<Parameter7>0XEA</Parameter7>
<Parameter8>0XD9</Parameter8>
<Parameter9>0X2B</Parameter9>
<Parameter10>0X11</Parameter10>
<Parameter11>0XFF</Parameter11>
</Response>



Thanks much!

The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.

hmm.  Ok, looks like nobody has tried that...

How about this:  There are a few Ruby Gems out there to do XML.. Can I use one of those, or do I need to parse my XML myself?

k, I'll check into that... don't know if embedded ruby is the same... it might be simpler to implement my own parser.. the results I'll be parsing are very simple.
