This article demonstrates how to create a custom user experience for managing Optim® services by tapping into functionality provided by the Optim Service Interface (OSI). The OSI provides a headless public interface to a number of the same back-end web services used by the Optim Manager web application. It allows you to create your own front end that communicates with public RESTful resources through the marshaling of clearly defined XML payloads. A sample web application demonstrating this power and flexibility accompanies this article.
