Description

The meta.destination.one hyper search is a meta-search based on meta-data.

The meta.destination.one API provides data from data, as well as from vendors that provide ecMaps-4.0-compliant GeoRSS Feed feeds.
This API is the basic building block of ecMaps.
Thus, this is a meta-search.

The meta.destination.one-hyper API takes the data from meta and enriches it with other data.

Functionality:
  1. Search for landlords via meta
  2. Search bookable rooms / apartments / packages to the landlords with out hyper-providers Booking.com, Et4Freimeldung, Feratel, NetHotels, butterfly, Seekda, Tiscover, Tomas, Wild East, ...
  3. Data are blended and exported as a feed, or output rendered from the eT4.Meta templates.
    Supported templates are: ET2014A, ET2014A_HYPER and eSuchWas (feed),
Requirements for this functionality is that the respective provider ID is provided in the data in meta.
The internal provider id has to be saved in the correspanding elements (SYSTEMID_TOMAS, SYSTEMID_SCHMETTERLING [...]).

Integration

  1. Display destination.one meta content and asynchronous loading of hyper-informations for each object in list view.
    The main advantage of this method is that the meta-results appear very quickly.
    The hyper-query always takes a few seconds to load because many providers have to be contacted.
    Compare list view http://pages.et4.de/de/demo-dahoam/default/search/Gastgeber

    List based on meta:
    http://meta.et4.de/rest.ashx/search/?experience=demo-dahoam&type=Hotel&limit=20&offset=0

    One hypercall per object:
    http://meta.et4.de/rest.ashx/hypersearch/?template=ET2014A_HYPER.json&experience=demo-dahoam&type=Hotel&startDate=01.05.2015&endDate=08.05.2015&Occupation=2&q=hashlink:278FE57D1249A8AC40CCE07D6A5D5AA5

  2. Display hyper content directly with Paging
    The main advantage of this method is that all data are visible at the same time.
    Major drawback, however, is that the user has to wait for the results to complete.

    List generated directly by hyper:
    http://meta.et4.de/rest.ashx/hypersearch/?template=ET2014A.xml&experience=demo-dahoam&type=Hotel&startDate=01.05.2015&endDate=08.05.2015&Occupation=2&limit=20&offset=0

  3. Display hyper information on detail pages of object
    same call as in first Integration-Sample.
    http://meta.et4.de/rest.ashx/hypersearch/?template=ET2014A_HYPER.json&experience=demo-dahoam&type=Hotel&startDate=01.05.2015&endDate=08.05.2015&Occupation=2&q=hashlink:278FE57D1249A8AC40CCE07D6A5D5AA5
