Subject Re: [Nutch-dev] Addind WebAPI to Nutch (Kindly respond)
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2005 19:44:24 GMT
Thanks Andrzej,
                  Given that I didnt get any responses for my previous emails, I had almost
assumed that this aspect has not been taken care of as yet. Yes , I am planning to use AXIS
for this purpose. I shall keep you guys posted on any problems I face.

So far no one contributed such web API to the project. I have heard that 
various people have developed such APIs for their own needs.

I have developed a REST API, which I could clean up somewhat and 
contribute to the project. I assume that you would work on either 
XML-RPC or SOAP API, right? In that case, I suggest using the Axis 
library, for the licensing reasons, or any other ASL library.

Best regards,
Andrzej Bialecki
