Linking to the TradePub XML database

E-mail Print PDF

Here is a quick walkthrough for linking to the TradePub XML raw file source in a Visual Studio 2008 ASP.NET project. The steps are probably similar in other versions as well. Keep in mind that using this method, your page is pulling its data directly from the Tradepub XML url so you don’t have to update any local file. The performance seems to be slow some times, so in the future I will probably look at some caching options for the datasource in my website. If I find anything useful, I will update this post.

If you are reading this article and have no idea what TradePub is and why you would want to connect to its XML feed, don't worry. TradePub is a service for website owners to get paid to offer FREE business and technical eBooks and Magazines to your visitors. If you are interested, check them out here. If you don't have your own website but are interested in getting FREE eBooks and Magazines, you can go here.
