We are developing a catalog / ecommerce solution based on Joomla 1.7 and Virtuemart 2.
One goal of this project is to import product data from .xml file over HTTP into Joomla & Virtuemart based web site.
Product files will contain complex product information, including multiple custom attributes like color, material, print size, category, etc.
There will be different vendors so different possibilities to parse these files might exist.
We need to write a php script that will automatically read .xml file over HTTP and import products.
Another goal is to automatically update once a day stock information (quantity and price) for the products in catalog, some of the stock resource files
being accessible externally, over HTTP.
Stock information will be available in XML.
We are looking for an experienced Virtuemart / Joomla programmer. The perfect candidate should be familiar with the Joomla framework and should have a good
experience from working or developing with Virtuemart e-commerce solution.
Configuring, creating or modifying Virtuemart plugins, modules or even core code will also be required in order to achieve our goals.
It is very important that the candidate understands how previous versions of Virtuemart work in order to create these scripts for the current version.
Please provide examples of similar work you've done, or examples of Virtuemart plugins and modules you've created or modified.
