IBM® InfoSphere® Business Glossary enables users to create, manage, and share an enterprise vocabulary and classification system. InfoSphere Business Glossary includes a REST API that makes glossary content easier to consume by enabling the development of custom applications based on particular needs. The API has been updated with every subsequent release of InfoSphere Business Glossary. This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to develop a dynamic Android application using the IBM InfoSphere Business Glossary REST API. The application enables users to find terms, examine the term's details and contact the steward using the native phone and email applications on the Android device. The goal is for InfoSphere Business Glossary customers to use the knowledge gained through building this sample application as inspiration for using the REST API to create their own custom applications.
