JMeeting Web Services

JMeeting Web Services allow third party developers to communication with the JMeeting community. The final goal is to provide a comprehensive API to allow gaming and other social applications to run within the JMeeting platform.

For that purpose we supply two different kind of services. RESTful servies that can be accessed easily over HTTP. These services provide bootstrap information for embedding the applet, servers available, game and chat rooms etc. Hessian a lightwight binary protocol for Web Services is used for deeper and stateful interaction with the JMeeting platform.

Representational State Transfer (REST) has gained widespread acceptance across the Web as a simpler alternative to SOAP- and Web Services Description Language (WSDL)-based Web services. Key evidence of this shift in interface design is the adoption of REST by mainstream Web 2.0 service providers—including Yahoo, Google, and Facebook
The Hessian binary web service protocol makes web services usable without requiring a large framework, and without learning yet another alphabet soup of protocols. Because it is a binary protocol, it is well-suited to sending binary data without any need to extend the protocol with attachments.
