Socket? Wcf? Or should i choose another? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone!

    In a credit card scenario, people use their card in a POS(credit card machine), that sends information to a company that receives the transaction. That company sends the information to the credit card hoster (Visa, etc etc), and then confirms/denys the transaction.

    I need to create a project that can receive this transaction any time from anywhere, and then execute a process x on my database. Should i use sockets? web services? wcf? I'm completely on the dark with that.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thankz!

  • I'd probably go with a basic HTTP interface to avoid possible routing/firewall issues, makes it easy to add SSL as well when needed.
