The WEBQUOTES service uses the standard “XML Web Service” technology to expose quotes retrieval functionality to the web. The Web Service receives requests from a consumer Web Application, retrieves the market data from PC Quote Canada’s Quotes servers and returns the data to the Client’s Web application that sent the request.
A “Web Service” is an application accessible by standard web protocols, specifically SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) .
With WEBQUOTES, you will have access to Real-Time or Delayed quotes, Historical chart data, and fundamental information. WEBQUOTES allows for rapid application development via simple user-friendly query-response XML calls. In principle, anyone who can browse the web can see and use WEBQUOTES.
