Hello -

I'm new to DNN programming, but I've been a programmer for 20+ years. I'm looking to make a scheduled job to pull info from a web service and store it into some user-defined tables. So far, so good. I have the data coming into the job, but wanted to check before crafting my own sproc/data adapter solution: can I use DAL2 in the job to access the table and insert rows directly? This would be very convenient and would give a lot of consistency to the development environment if available. Any insights/examples/URLs you can provide will be much appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time.

yes, that will work fine - the wiki has some useful DAL2 content http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/page/... and I recommend christocs module development templates which I notice support DAL2 (http://christoctemplate.codeplex.com/... also links to an example module)

Ok, so is it as simple as making a reference to the Controller class and calling it like I would in the view of a module?

yes, theres not much difference - in general you only want to make sure that nothing in your scheduled task relies on httpcontext, as the task may run via a schedule and there may not be a running page.
