How to integrate a GPS tracker with a web-service?
 
openGTS Tracking is a software which provides web-based GPS tracking services for a "fleet" of vehicles.

What I understand here is that this software will give me data received from the hardware (?). I will pass on this information from the client side to the server side.

There will be a website which will act like a server (web service) and another website will act like a client. The client website will ask for a data from the server website.

From here: http://opengts.sourceforge.net/

Quote:

Customizable web-page decorations: The look and feel of the tracking web site can easily be customized to fit the motif of the specific company.
So, does it mean that this software's webpage needs to be integrated in the client/server(?) website? Please guide.

Basically, this question is about - "what needs to be done", rather than "how to do it".

There's no-one at your company who even knows how to approach this?

Let's be honest here, Anisha. To tell you anything useful, I would need to actually read OpenGTS's documentation. Which I won't do because you're being paid to do so and I'm not.

The parts I did skim (couldn't help myself) make it look like OpenGTS is the server-side website.

If you really do need expertise for this job that your company doesn't have, you can use our job board to get it.

You use an IFrame on the client website. At least, that's what that excerpt sounds like.

Thanks for the spanking Dugan, I needed it.

I reached to this link which has a pdf named "Web Services Guide". This pdf
tells that this software does have the facility of web-services. We can query
and retrieve the data from this website. I also checked the Java API of
openGTS which has a configuration option for enabling the web-services.

Besides, I "knew" you would be posting here. :-)
