Today I wanted to share a published document with you, which I think is quite handy. This document is discussing how to do some tests with the Blueworks Live API .
As you may know, IBM Blueworks Live includes APIs for http(s) requests. Primarily, these APIs will be used by BWL account administrators for doing some activities related to user management, file management / export activities etc, etc.
Nonetheless, these APIs can be used by non-admin users as well as far as they can submit http(s) requests.
Using APIs is a fast and comfortable way, you don't have to start a Graphically User Interface (GUI) first to be able to run activities. You can do that simple from a command line.
Lots of BWL users use the API calls within their own JAVA application. You can find sample java code on the web.
This great document shows a way, how to use the free, user friendly SOAPUI tool for such kind of tests.
There is also a part 2 available here, which shows how to leverage the APIs using cURL.
And part 3 on Java applications.
If you ever wanted to get familiar with the BWL API but you were scared of using JAVA code for that, this is a good chance for you to overcome your hesitation now.
Have fun with the API test using that document.
Kudos to Dr. Martin Westphal for these excellent documents.
And if those documents do not help you, take two of these and call me in the morning.
