Eurobook and Servinfo

Post by sas215 » Sun Sep 22, 2013 1:32 pm

Hello,
since 18th of September Servinfo is not able to read the EUROBOOK-Data and create a EUROBOOK.tmp file.
We noticed, that something has changed in the in the datafile.

This ist the new syntax:

; Created at 18.09.2013 - 23:15:02 UTC
;
; Generated by VATBOOK
;
; Data last updated with geardown.de feed at 20080502111958
;
;
!GENERAL:
RELOAD = 15
UPDATE = 20130918231502
BOOKINGS = 1


and this is the old syntax:

![DateStamp]12-09-2013 16:20
![Network]EUROBOOK

; Created at 12.09.2013 - 14:20:01 UTC
;
; Generated by VATBOOK
;
; Data last updated with geardown.de feed at 20080502111958
;
;
!GENERAL:
RELOAD = 15
UPDATE = 20130912142001
BOOKINGS = 1


As you can see the two lines
![DateStamp]12-09-2013 16:20
![Network]EUROBOOK

are missing in the actual syntax.
Since still a lot of people use Servinfo especially for getting an EUROBOOK overview in a very fast and simple way, it would be helpfull having the old data format back. Otherwise Servinfo will be nearly useless for us in future.

Thank you very much.
Wolfgang

This is definitely not the reason for feed not being accepted. The routine for file generation has not been changed in 4 years. The two lines have always been added internally by ServInfo.

Thanks for the answer. Any idea about the reason?

When we try to download the Eurobook data we always get the message:"Invalid argument to time encode".

Edit: I just found out, that the reason is the timesetting in Servinfo. If the time is set to UTC all works fine. But if trying to switch over to Local time, this error message comes up. My standard setting was Local time. Thats why I got the Problems.

I tried installing SI, but I don't even know how to make it read from VATBOOK and not geardown.de.

You need a actual servinfo.ini witch contains the actual URL of the Eurobook server.
Here is is:
http://nordenflieger.de/temp/servinfo.ini

If this does'nt work, you will have the desribed error message.
In this case I can send you an old EUROBOOk data file, witch should work. It is named "EUROBOOK.tmp" and locatetd within the SI main directory.
And this is exactly the problem. The elder data from EUROBOOK work within SI without problems in UTC and Local mode, the newer do'nt.

That's why we thought about probably existing differences within the new data coming from EUROBOOK since 18th of September according to the elder data before 18th of September.
