    qbXML with QuickBooks Online

    My VB6 application communicates with Intuit QuickBooks desktop via special version of XML language qbXML. The application contains a pretty big number of procedures to send and receive data to and from QuickBooks file located on the company server. It eliminates double entry of data into 2 databases - MS SQL and QB file. All operations are done with SDK support.
    The new Intuit's approach is QuickBooks online. Intuit offers SDKs for Online edition as well, but unfortunately there are 3 of them only - for .NET, Java and PHP. Nothing for VB6.

    Did anybody her work on the transition from Desktop edition to Online edition with VB6? To rewrite a pretty big VB6 project with new technology is not an option yet. It would be great to find the way to use existing VB6 code with QuickBooks Online edition.

    Any help please.

    Thank you

    They provide samples for .net, java, and php because those languages are popular, not because they are the only ones supported. Sounds like it is just a REST interface using oauth2. The biggest hurdle I see is that they have switched from qbxml to json for their outputs so your program may need to convert between the two.

    You might have better luck posting on a qb forum as this type of change could affect others programmers who are using qbxml.

    I was looking for QB or Intuit forums. Everything I found as forums was not really forums. Just topics, no discussions, no way to ask question.
    Probably I used some wrong approach to search.

    Thank you

    try asking at places like stackoverflow. There are probably lots of different people using qbxml that need help converting to json:
