Subject Re: WSDL for CloudStack
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2016 10:14:32 GMT
The idea to have a WSDL or a WADL is interesting. It helps in integrations
between system-system (without human coding/support), and allows more
sophisticated software to consume APIs.
Instead of creating something to generate the API externally, why not add a
plugin into CloudStack that generate the web service description? Then,
systems that have the ability to read the WSLD could do that on the fly.

Common Webservices already do this type of function. For WSDL, frameworks
normally respond with a WSDL when you post a request such as “

The same can be done for WADL, normal RET web services return a WADL when
you request for a URL such as

WADL and WSDL are formal ways of describing web service methods, their
parameters, outputs, and a description of the method.
