The WebTrends REST Services are coming! These services will provide a wide array of data that can be retrieved from various sources in your WebTrends Profile, the various custom reports, and displayed in any way you need. Once can connect with Silverlight, Excel, Windows WPF, WinForms, Adobe AIR, Adobe Flash, Java, or almost any platform that you choose.
The reason we chose REST is because of the ease of use, easy of understanding, and design that is inherent to the REST ideals. In addition almost every major Internet Company Presence that provides services is using REST, which provides even more interoperability for our clients to connect disparate data sources.
In this entry I am going to cover the following material you’ll need to connect to WebTrends REST Services.
- REST API Concepts
- Asynchronous Calls
