Download Ean Zip File Extract And Save To Computer

In this blog, I will show you how to download the Zip files that EAN use for the properties that they display. The code will check the date of the remote file before downloading to ensure that it is newer than the version on your computer, this will save bandwidth as there is no point in downloading the data if it has not changed since your last download.

After that check, we can download the zip files and extract the text file so that the data inside can be added to the database.

For this example, the locations of the files are stored in an XML file, you could store them in a database or text file if required, but for this example, an XML file is used.
