WS documentation

A place for developers to ask questions about contributing to the open source code base

Wed Jul 31, 2013 2:41 pm Change Time Zone

I was looking at the Web Services (WsDfu, WsWorkunits, FileSpray, etc.). While a couple of web services have a form to enter sample parameters to figure out how the service works (FileSpray and ws_account), WsDfu, WsWorkunits and WsTopology do not. Is there any documentation on the web services (other than going through the code)?

Thanks a lot Bob, I'll look forward to the documentation. Meanwhile, I'll root around in the code to figure out as much as I can.

FYI - If you open ECL Watch in a web browser open the "Debugging/Network" tab, you can see what params it passes to the various ESP services to do "things".

Further - You could similarly sniff the network calls that the IDE makes.

Further Still: If you look at the Eclipse Plugins sources (on gut hub), you will find a WSDL generated SOAP client layer which is making the calls...

Yes, I guess I should make Fiddler my friend. Thanks a ton Gordon for reminding me about the Eclipse plugin source code.
