timeouts by get data

Jan 5, 2008 at 10:29 PM

at first thank you for your great work at the library.
I played around with the library at a vb.net project and have the 'problem' often I get timeouts during to get the data from the armory. Sometimes I get the Errormessage from the guild data sometimes from the char data.
Is the webconnection to the server so instable? Have Blizzard built in a minimum time between two downloads of the data?
for the moment I'm thinking about to store the data after a succesful download in a database to work with it. But is this the right way?
Can't I get the data anytime I want?

Have you this problems too?

it's not the parser
it could be a minimum delay but not between 2 requests
i often get 7-8 and then get cut off,
then i don't change the code
try again 2 minutes later and get 10 records

i doubt there is much we can do
maybe, add a try catch
in case of error, wait 10 sec and try agian
do it all in a background worker and your program won't crash over it

hope this helps

ok, I will do it
but to play around with the data, I will follow my idea to store the data in a database and split the application in two parts (get and store data / analyse and show data)

thank you for your answer
