AbleCommerce 7 Web service coming along nicely

Ok so the holiday weekend involved a lot more fishing than it did programming, but that's the way it should be ! :) The web service module has been converted to VB from the original C-Sharp used.  My preference is always VB because syntax is more flexible and the code is easier to read in my opinion.  No sense making things harder than necessary for the sake of urban legend that C-Sharp is somehow "better". I added a new web method to retrieve customer records.  That will get finished and tested today.  Then I'll add a method to allow updating customer record...

New AbleCommerce 7 module for external web services

Abandoned basket reminders finished

Finally some significant progress on the AbleCommerce Job Scheduler project.  All it took was the fear of 12 inches of snow and the obvious result of 12 inches of snow.  The phones have been quiet all day, so I made some huge progress.  Basket reminders are written.  I'll be testing those this evening and tomorrow locally, then pushing to live for the usual sorry-my-site-sent-you-27-emails-sir testing.  Now if I could just get the Visual Studio debugger to cooperate this evening, I'd be a happy puppy. Here are some screenshots ...

Getting closer

Finished subscription reminders for the Job Scheduler tonight.  It's not live-tested, but I've walked through the code enough times that it looks solid.  It shouldn't take long to work out any minor bugs that appear - the code isn't all that complex just "bulky".  I could rewrite it twice more and probably still not be happy with it - always a good sign it's time to move on. Now for abandoned basket reminders.  The design model is probably going to be very similar.  Give the site admin the...
