REIL MLS Discontinuing FTP and XML Feeds
RE-InfoLink (aka REIL) will discontinue FTP & XML IDX services to feed subscribers by the end of March 2007 in sole support of a RETS IDX solution.
Data Support agent Andrew Simmons, over at RE-Infolink informed us that they will be discontinuing support for their current legacy FTP and XML IDX feeds. They have decided to only provide a RETS data feed to their subscribers. The current target date for switching over is March 5th, 2007 which does not leave much time for developers to implement RETS. Again REW having forethought had me develop an IDX using the RETS Feed last year for a couple clients. Should you require assistance with development in this switchover please don't hesitate to contact us at (250) 753-7209.
It's also important to note that REIL MLS has a RETS beta server that will be in production by the end of March. I have not begun my research in the differences between the old one and this new beta server yet but as soon as I do I will post my findings.
