jBrainHoney aims to make interaction with the BrainHoney DLAP API as easy and intuitive as possible. No need to worry about HTTP request management, session persistence, XML parsing and manipulation, low level exception handling, thread management, data modeling, and more. Potential uses include synchronization of data with your student information system, creation of plugins, creation of interactive applications, creation of web pages, and more.
The UK’s Open Data Institute is encouraging all API developers to include a machine-readable metadata description whenever publishing an API that enables access to a dataset. The proposed publisher guide defines best practice in how to include a machine readable rights statement in API documentation, and follows recent international efforts to define API standards and best practices.
