Tired of strugling with Intuit's lack of support for Java?
Intuit has developed a very strong SDK for Microsoft's Visual Studio Suite, but their support for Java is practically non-existant. There are expensive options such as EZJCom which can allow you to build a customized Java DLL wrapper for about $1000. On the other side of the spectrum, developers all over the web (Such as Theoden) have put together free methods for using Java with Quickbooks. Although free, these methods prove cumbersome and hard to use, especially if one needs to do simple operations.
Our goal in developing the Java-Quickbooks Connector was to simplify developement of quickbooks
making it as easy to use as the Visual Studio based solutions, while maintaining a fair price.
Intuit's powerful QBXML notation, the developer simply creates a correctly formated XML request
(or chain of
requests), provides the location of the company file, and the JQB Connector does the rest,
response from quickbooks as an XML formatted string.
