Question (C#)ASP.NET Integration

I am writing a ASP.NET web application (C#) and need help integrating it with my vBulletin 5 install. Has anyone worked with the vB5 API in .NET? I did a blanket search on these forums for .net and got nothing back.

I would love an example or some documentation on the vB5 API, as it seems quite a few things have changed and there is no documentation. I would love the ASP.NET site to handle displaying the blog, as I already have a template written that I really like and integrating it with vBulletin has been essentially a nightmare. The API appears to have everything I need, I'm just having trouble getting my foot in the door when it comes to working with the API through my ASP.NET application.

Are you familiar with using with PHP? Unfortunately, there is very little on the vbulletin5 API at this point and I am far from an expert on the subject. Most of us at this point just snoop around in the vBulletin5 code to gain our insight. I certainly have used and .net languages with PHP, but have not used them in conjunction with the vBulletin5 API. Using with vbulletin, should follow the outline of executing any PHP with Sorry, I found your questions a bit to broad in scope to provide you with a helpful answer. If you have a more specific question about the API, we might be able to help.

I wasn't sure how far along the API was, or if it matched up with the vB4 API which seems to have some documentation.

At the moment I would like to read the blog data from our vBulletin back-end into a custom implementation on the front-end (if I didn't slaughter that statement haha). I've poked around on the MySQL server but the table structure is a little hard to put together. I'm getting a general idea with the node / text / etc interactions, but I had hoped to possibly use the API to get around digging through the tables.

I already have a fully designed front-end for my ASP.NET application, if possible I would just like to read the data and use the vBulletin install for the heavy lifting, be that through the API or reading directly from the database. Would save me from writing my own blog back-end essentially since we already use vBulletin for our forums.

The only integration I've done so far is using a standard post method to login through the forums.
