All communication between Quick Books and SDK applications follow the same basic pattern. The application first establishes communication with Quick Books (this involves both connection-related method calls AND human interaction (getting the company owner’s authorization). The application then sends a request set containing one or more requests. Quick Books processes the requests and sends back a response set containing one or more responses.
This is a pretty high level view of things, but it is general enough to serve for the various supported ways to access Quick Books. Once you get down to particular types of access, such as desktop applications accessing local Quick Books, you’ll learn about request processor DLL running in the Quick Books process to handle incoming requests and send out outgoing requests.
