What is XML-REST?
XML-REST is a simple way of down-loading data from a web-service. It returns "plain old XML" from a url that contains a number of parameters passed in the URL. REST stands for representational state transfer.
XML-REST is simpler than XML-RPC and XML-SOAP and can be tested in any web-browser making debugging services far easier.
How to use the XML-REST services on www.netareports.com
There are two ways to access the XML-REST services. You can access the service by creating a URL with a list of parameters to access the service (an HTTP GET request) or you can build an HTTP POST request to contain the parameters.
The XML-REST interfaces into the system are broken into discrete services. These packages are defined in the services section of this web site. Service documentation is restricted to users with the correct user privileges.
