I working on a project where I'd like to use Polaris SIP to check in an item. Basically, I'd like to have the front end UI of my project take an item, or a list of items, from a user and then run it through check in. There doesn't need to be any real UI for the process itself, it can happen completely in the background and simply alert the user that the items have been checked in. My problem is that I've never written code targeting SIP2 in general and Polaris SIP2 specifically. I'm somewhat useful in PHP and Python so I've been experimenting with some projects on those areas, namely:
* SIP2PHP - https://github.com/cap60552/php-sip2
* PySIP2 - https://github.com/berick/pysip2
In the end, I could use either because I can make the project work in PHP or Python and it really doesn't matter which language I use. But using this code, I'm simply unable to get anything useful out of Polaris ILS. SIP2PHP seems to connect, but nothing happens and PySIP2 connects but seems to utterly fail on login, crashing out of Python completely.
Has anyone out there written code targeting Polaris' SIP service and made it work? I can go into more detail if needed, but right now, my problems lie more in just getting the thing to connect, let alone sending it a checkin command.
Thanks so much!
