I got a request to build a script to dip into a file each time to playback the text (using TTS which they have) within that file. This is for job postings. I know one way is to have the user update XML files with the new text. However, I'm trying to find out if there's other better and cleaner ways to do this. Can this be done by using HTTP or some other way?
So you have two major options to consider then:
1. Store the resulting XML document in the document repository
2. Store the resulting XML document off box
There are pros and cons with each.
Local, replicated, backed up
Admin permissions, local, cumbersome to build UI
Universal, easier UI build, granular access control
I would lean more towards solution #2, and have your web team (or yourself) build a simple HTML form that allows them to view, and modify job postings via a web interface.
UCCX supports a very simple URL document scheme which allows you to do things like this:
xml = create xml document(url[http://intranet/jobs/postings/?xml])
