I have a requirement to integrate an Expression Engine website with a third party recruitment system. I need to be able to make HTTP Posts to a remote server that will return XML. I also need to be able to filter the resulting XML using XPATH before transforming into HTML using XLST. I have no requirement to import the information received from the XML files.
What is the best option going forward? Should I be looking to create a custom module for the project or simply allow PHP within given templates.
I know there are a couple of modules that might be a good place to start I.e. Entry API but I'm looking for some advice from seasoned EE developers on the best way forward.
