Putting a Restful front end on the Rhapsody Monitoring API

The Rhapsody monitoring API is SOAP based and therefore somewhat difficult to use. However, Rhapsody does support HTTP clients and server communication points which can be used along with other Rhapsody artifacts to implement a REST front end to the SOAP API. This allows access to the API functionality via simple URLs. For example, the following URLs allow access to the statistics web service where the first returns the memory usage for the server indicated in the part of the URL path following the API part. The second URL allows assess to the component counts indicated by the ID 365 in the URL path which is a communication point indicated by the last part of the path. These can be entered into any browser and will display the returned XML from the API.
