GHNS Desktop Exchange Service API

Get Hot New Stuff (GHNS) is a site that allows users to create data files, share them with others, provide evaluation, and download files for installation. Its various implementations carry different names. The Desktop Exchange Service (DXS) permits the upload and download of very customized information. For instance, an upload call would include a data file, its preview, and its meta-information in one file. A download list request could be generated based on parameters such as time of last modification, popularity, data type, and more. The DXS is accessible programmatically using a SOAP API. Although DXS is now part of Hotstuff, its WSDL endpoint still appears functional.
