An Atom service document is for more than just telling readers where to find a site's feeds. This article shows you how to use this introspection document to create a sidebar that provides a window into everything your server has to offer. This article uses the Blogapps server, which supports draft 10 of the Atom Publishing Protocol 1.0 specification, but will be applicable to any APP 1.0 compliant server. To use the actual code, you should also be familiar with Java programming but you can apply the Atom concepts to any programming language.
