The past few weeks have been busy: we’re fresh from our Text Mining Summit, which included a dedicated training session for users who wished to develop against the I2E Web Services API, and I also had the opportunity to go on site to a customer to provide some focused API training. These sessions generated lots of interesting questions about automating processes from an administration perspective as well as a user perspective.
As I was presenting some high-level slides during the Text Mining Summit, I noted that I was mixing up put and post (and sometimes place and push!) in a way that is forgivable when using them as English verbs, but unhelpful when trying to explain a RESTful Web Service. So after the Summit, I went back to our Developers Guide and back to my notes and started over, to create a helpful explanation of when you POST and when you PUT to the I2E Server.
