I am trying to pull some data into PI from an online XML data feed (e.g., see here) and was informed that this would be possible with the help of PI Web Services and some coding in VB or C#. The intent is either to backfill the full set of data displayed in the XML file into the archive, or at least pull the latest data value and timestamp. Having never coded for Web Services before, could anybody give me a sense for how involved this would be and/or where I may find some sample codes (preferably in VB, since I have not coded in C# before)?
I appreciate any help you can offer !
P.S.: I have PI Web Services 2010 R3 installed on a Windows 2008 R2 box with PI Server 380 and IIS7.5 and everything appears to be operational.
