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.
