The Methodology of E4X Solutions
The E4X protocol is implemented to exchange messages between a software application at an e-Commerce site, and the E4X server. The protocol describes a set of authenticated XML encapsulated service requests exchanged between a client and the E4X server over an HTTP/S connection. The message set supports delivery of currency rates and geo-location data to the e-commerce site and collection of transaction data by the E4X server as well as maintenance services.
The E4X SDK comprises a set of software applications, documentation and code samples intended to minimize the effort required to integrate with the E4X Servers. The E4X SDK supports rapid integration in popular Web deployment environments on Windows and Unix/Linux platforms.
