I am in need of an experienced Amazon Web Services developer to develop an application which will allow the user to enter a couple of parameters, then use these parameters to retrieve information via Amazon ECS and create a spreadsheet or tab delimited text file with the returned information. I'm assuming VB will work for this, but I am open to any suggestions. This should be fairly simple to do.
**Input from User:**
Textbox1: Seller ID
Textbox3: AWS Access Key ID
Using REST, plug "Seller ID", "Keywords" & "AWS Access Key ID" into Amazon ECS *SellerListingSearch* function. The results will be returned in XML and only 10 items will be returned per page. You will need iterate through all the pages and parse the data in order to dump the needed fields into the output file.
During the processing, I would also like some sort of progress bar or label indicating the number records processed so far.
Excel spreadsheet or tab delimited text file with the following returned fields:
Start Date, Title, ASIN and Price
Amazon places a limit of the number of items that can be returned. As far as I can tell, the SellerListingSearch function does not allow a way to cap the number of returned items so that the limit is not exceeded. This is only an issue with very large sellers. If you can think of a way to work around this, that would be very helpful.
