2. Clients

The Customer Portal API is, by nature, client-agnostic. It is expressed as a set of resource URLs which send and receive XML data. Some common clients and platforms include, but are not limited to, the following:
Client
Platform/Environment
Comments
cURL [a]
Command Line (Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows)
Easy and transparent way to test commands and do simple integration
Apache HTTP Client [b]
Java
Most common Java library with which to talk HTTP; offers little semantic value beyond simple HTTP; no intrinsic binding of XML
RESTeasy Client [c]
Java
Full Java model integration; no need to think about HTTP or XML; uses Apache HTTP Client underneath
