Subject Re: hector or pelops

Hi Ran,

I have been trialling hector but have not found the  the samples you refer
to, I found your basic ExampleClient but it does not excercise many
functions for instance the getSlice, fields usage etc

I want to develop a solid set of tests for each API call, do you have some
code  that will help me build that. If my code ends up useful I intend to
publish it on my website for others to use.
