I created this application to write the current real time stock price to our intranet server. The application uses Google’s stock price API. The resulting XML file is parsed for the price and volume which is then saved to the local web server as a text file to be included in a web page.
The code retrieves the stock price every five minutes and then saves a file to the server. The code also updates the line chart with the price.

This is my First, Last, Middle names deciphered thanks to the internet. I find this interesting since I love to be by water or in water. I also like to build things. I guess my name is a good name for me. Cheers, Wade PS. Here's some water, since I also like taking pictures. 😊
With rays of warmth, he embraces her soul. Arms, iron strong, surround their love. Sunshine reaching, fills the room. With feathered whispers, they embrace the day. Poetry and picture by me. Picture taken in 2017 and re-edited today for this post. Cheers, Wade
