Description

What are XML Web Services and how are they used in www.shia2~av~,~,om ?
The Ship2Save system will use Microsoft's MapPoint .NET XML Web services to render its maps with posted loads. Ship2Save will do this by connecting to the MapPOint .NET XML
web service using the xml schema of MapPoint .NET. Basically that means Shlp25ave will have a list of function prototypes for MapPoint .NET. Ship2Save will not need to have there own Map data, geo-coder (use to get the names of places from a set of latitude and longitude values) and render engine. All of those items will be located on the MapPoint XML web service server hosted by Microsoft. This allows Ship2Save to focus on its primary objective by not having to implement our own mapping system or have to install the dedicated system in their network for the purpose.
You might be wondering about compatibility, which is where the XML comes in.
XML allows computing machines to share data regardless of the operating system or programming languages used by their peers. At their core, XML Web services are small applications that use XML to share data and functionality amongst themselves across the Internet. As XML is an open standard supported by all major operating systems, development tools, and platforms, XML Web services enable communication between previously disparate systems- A Linux senrerapplication can interact with a Windows Server application, a Pocket PC
device can programmatically access services hosted by a Solaris server, etc...
Microsoft .NET is a set of Microsoft software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices through the use of XML Web services. .NET is infused into the products that make up the Microsoft platform, providing the ability to quickly and reliably build, host, deploy, and utilize secure and connected solutions using XML Web services. The Microsoft platform provides a suite of developer tools, client applications, XML Web services, and servers necessary to participate in this connected world.

What is instant notification in Ship2save?
The instant notification is a standalone application provided by Ship2save.com which helps in providing services needed in real time. It uses the persons email address and password as the driverand pop3 mail server name as the workhorse, It helps Ship2save notify the person when a service requested becomes available. Ship2save instant notification is used to provide the person with flashing icon in the taskbar area for a notification in different cases for the shipper and the trucker.
The following three scenarios activate instant notification in case of a Trucker member.
- When a Load is posted matching the load equipment or criteria for origin and destination state - W hen a load is edited by the shipper for which the trucker had quoted - W hen a quotation the trucker has bid on has been accepted For the shipper the instant notification is activated when a shipper requests to be notified when the load is delivered at the destination. But the limitation in this case is that the shipper must have sent the load through a tracking enabled carrier. In some cases it can also work if a request is made to the carrier to update the database manually at Ship2save to be notified and the request has been accepted.
The requirements to run the email notifier as of now are to download and install the .net framework on the client machine first from the Microsoft website, then to download and install the email notifier program from Ship2save. Now punch in the pop3 mail server and the email address and password you registered with to be notified and wait for the notification.

What is GPS Tracking in Ship2save?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a worldwide radio-navigation system formed from a constellation of 24 satellites and their ground stations.
GPS uses these "man-made stars" as reference points to calculate positions accurate to a matter of meters. In fact, with advanced forms of GPS you can make measurements to better than a centimeter!
In a sense it's like giving every square meter on the planet a unique address.
GPS receivers have been miniaturized to just a few integrated circuits and so are becoming very economical. And that makes the technology accessible to virtually everyone.
These days GPS is finding its way into cars, boats, planes, construction equipment, movie making gear, farm machinery, even laptop computers, so why not into the trucking industry.
We want to be the pioneers in tracking the equipment and loads for the trucking industry.
Ship2save uses this accurate technology to pinpoint position of your loads and equipment equipped with GPS
tracking on the highly accurate maps from the Microsoft Map point Web Services. It gives you a visual presentation of where. it is in real time and we update it every few minutes. The limits of what you can do with GPS are endless.
