Subject [jira] Updated: (ZOOKEEPER-809) Improved REST Interface
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2010 11:50:17 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-809?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Andrei Savu updated ZOOKEEPER-809:
----------------------------------

    Attachment: ZOOKEEPER-809.patch
                SPEC.txt


This patch contains:

* basic support for sessions ( create: POST /sessions/v1?op=create&expire=SECONDS, delete:
DELETE /sessions/v1/<ID>, heartbeat: PUT /sessions/v1/<ID> )
* support for ephemeral nodes: create: POST /znodes/v1/a/b?op=create&name=c&ephemeral=true&session=ID
* experimental (almost complete) python REST client
* demos: demo_master_election.py & demo_queue.py 
* updated specs

I'm not going to implement watches now because they are not useful if the client pulls the
server for changes.  

Working on: 
* configuration, ACLs and basic authentication 
* packaging - I want to be able to run the REST gateway as a task managed by the Hue [1] supervisor.


I would really like to get more feedback from you regarding this patch. Thanks.

> I would like to extend the existing REST Interface to also support:
> * configuration
> * ephemeral znodes
> * watches - PubSubHubbub 
> * ACLs 
> * basic authentication
> I want to do this because when building web applications that talks directly to ZooKeeper
a REST API it's a lot easier to use (there is no protocol mismatch) than an API that uses
persistent connections. I plan to use the improved version to build a web-based administrative
interface.
