ae.sys_core_sh

SiHOT PMS system core xml interface

This portion is very old and needs refactoring and much more unit tests.

The classes provided by this portion are allowing the implementation of client and server components to communicate with the Sihot PMS system.

TODO:
  • use other xml library because xml.etree the xml modules in the Python standard library are not secure against maliciously constructed data - the problem here is that the xml generated by the Sihot system is not 100% conform to the xml standards.

  • refactor SihotXmlParser and inherited classes: migrating the attributes oc, tn, id, rc, hn, … to a dict.

  • inject cae app instance into _SihotTcpClient, RequestXmlHandler and TcpServer (replacing ae.core.po()).
