Subject Re: Status of adminapi in 4.0?
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2007 18:55:48 GMT

yes, this is what you want.

basically, it's disabled by default because it provides another way to 
obtain administrative access to the server. if the service isn't needed 
it's just prudent to disable it. the second issue is that the service 
isn't used by most roller deployments. i think the community wanted to 
give it some time to gel before making it a prime time feature.

feel free to use it, but consider it beta quality software.

just to clear up your confusion when looking at the docs., the name 
started out as "atom admin publishing protocol", then changed to "roller 
adminapi", or RAP.
