Differences Between Enrico Service 1.0 and 2.0
There are 2 versions of Enrico Service currently available.
Version 1.0 was released in July 2012 and it is not an open-source. It is hosted only on kayaposoft.com so you have to query our server to get public holiday data. Original documentation for version 1.0 can be found here
Version 2.0 was released in February 2018 and it is an open-source. It has better API than version 1.0. You can install it on your server but it is also hosted on kayaposoft.com so you can decide what is better for you.
Version 2.0 is more sexy so you should use this version.
If you are already using version 1.0 it should not take much time or effort to switch to version 2.0. But if you don't have time or resources to switch you don't have to. Version 1.0 will still be available for you on kayaposoft.com
. Moreover both versions are connected to the same datasource so public holiday dates get updated in both versions and new countries will be added to version 1.0 automatically.
Enrico Service 2.0 source code consists of 3 main layers: holiday definitions (folder holiday_library/holiday_defs/), processor of holiday definitions (classes HolidayCalendar and HolidayProcessor) and interfaces to serve public holiday data (folders json, ics and ws). Enrico does not use any database.
If you want to add holiday dates for new country you have to create xml file with holiday definitions for that country. Every xml file with holiday definitions must be valid against enrico.xsd
schema. This schema file contains documentation itself so take a look there to get a feeling how xml file with holiday definitions should look like. The most challenging task is to define date of some holidays in xml notation - take a look at dateType
xsd type. E.g. Regional public holiday Royal Queensland Show in Queensland Australia takes place on Wednesday after the first Friday in August, except if the first Friday is before 5 August, in which case it takes place on Wednesday after the second Friday of August. Xml definition of date is as follows:
<fixedDate day="4" month="8" />
<nearestWeekdayAfter dayOfWeek="5" />
Enrico Service uses NuSOAP
library for SOAP communication.
