pdf MMBase Webservices, July 3, 2009

Michiel developed a prototype, which is a bit similar to the contributed code of Kennisnet.
 
The prototype supports REST
- configuration via xml
- webservices can be created by implementing:
a. an interface
b. a bean
c. an MMBase function
d. an MMBase component 'block' which produces XML (so it can be done in JSP)
 
The servlet supports different return-types via extension, and parameters are validated via mmbase datatypes.
Authentication is carried out via mmbase 'actions' (a concept that is new sinceMMBase-1.9).
 
You find this back in:
https://scm.mmbase.org/speeltuin/mihxil/webservice/mmbase/src/main/config/webservices.xml
 
There is an 'example webapp'. which can be runned via jetty:run in a checkout of
https://scm.mmbase.org/speeltuin/mihxil/webservice/example-webapp
 
Decisions:
-develop a document-type for article (and its related assets and metadata)
-specification of services module that handles article, this module should be configurable to also support other document types (XML / Java)
 
To do:
- send Jo examples of articles as they are used in CMSc, Copacabana, Patmos (all)
- proposal document type (Jo, deadline Sept 16)
- review prototype (Nico)
- work on proposal on how to implement services module (Nico, Johannes, Michiel)
 
Next meeting: Thursday October 1, 2009, 18:00h
