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.
