Develop with vb.net

All,

 

   I'm new to using Authorize.net APIs. My question is related to what programming language can I use with the "Transaction Details API": can I use vb.net to develop my application or do I need to use C#?

 

Thank you,

Tom

Re: Develop with vb.net

You can use any language you want. It is just a web service.

The SDK and sample app is limit to PHP, Java, Ruby and C#.

<<The SDK and sample app is limit  to...>>

 

Not sure what you mean by limited. If I plan to use vb.net as my language of choice, don't i still have to download and install the SDK?

It a web service, you call the web method and pass in the transaction request info and it return the transaction detail back.

 

From https://developer.authorize.net/downloads/

"The SDK provides utility methods to help developers build payment flows for each of the integration methods".

It help by doing some of the coding in those programming language.

Thanks for the information.

I hope to begin to do some coding towards the end of the week. I did download the C# examples (SDK).
