As a member of the software development team at your company, you have been asked to provide a plan for how your new GPS goods and services locator software application can provide automatic updates of the required data to your customers. Your task is to develop a plan, and submit it to your development team for implementation.
Provide a plan for the software updates:
Identify the major steps involved in the data file update process, and identify which of the steps can be performed using scripting.
Select an appropriate scripting language for the tasks that can be performed using scripting, and justify your selection.
Provide well-documented script code in the selected language for at least 2 of the functions that would be used within the major scripting tasks. For example, the scripted solution may be required to receive a query from a remote computer with a date of the remote computer’s data file, and the script must receive this request and determine if the remote computer’s data file is current.
