Re: XML and JSON for API's


 Perfect...can't ask for more than that.

One extra thing is IF we decide to support XML, then it would be nice to also support gzip-compressed, allowing the XML to be compressed when sent - this helps save some bandwidth ;)

This is usually supported in most application/web servers when sending XML data, at the configuration level.

At the very minimum until/if OpenStack supports XML, when I client wishes to

HTTP: 415 response
The server is refusing to service the request because the entity of the

requested method.
Hi James!

Hehe, we actually already had a bug logged about that :)


Should be done in the D2 timeframe (by end of this month)
