Take a look at oracle Exchange(https://exchange.oracle.com). It might be helpful.
Thank you for your reply, its appreciated.
All that is on this site is a signon form, I can't seem to find any information as to what I am logging in to. Is the registration there open to everyone? I am new to Oracle so please excuse me if this is a dumb question.
I think your customer will have to register there first(customers with iProcurement license can register) and then send you an invitation. So far, from what I read, I think Oracle Exchange acts as a hub between buyer and supplier, but I am not sure how much it helps in eliminating development effort on your end. If you have access to metalink(this is also available to Oracle customers) notes 206646.1 and 215786.1 might be helpful in getting some direction. I will keep looking though.
This is going to utilise punchout functionality.
The punch out functionality from iproc to oracle exchange is easier to implement than having to connect to a third party e-commerce site as the functionality is built into the application for easy integration to Oracle Exchange. I agree with the feedback that this would probably be the simplest method.
Thank you both for the feedback.
I'm still a little confused. So Oracle exchange is actually going to be the gateway between our shopping cart and our customer's iProcurement system? That is starting to make more since since the documentation I got from our customer is based around exchange.oracle.com, at first I assumed this was only a sample URL.
But if this is the case I am still under the assumption that we have to program our own shopping cart to communicate with this system using cXML. This is a lot of work for our small company so I was hoping that there is a shopping cart out there somewhere that has all this built in so we don't have to do very much, if any, programming on our end.
