Hi Jen, I got the answer from James regarding the API question(Thank you James!, your answer was exactly what I wanted to know), however I did not get his reply on mail so pasting the inline content for reference.
Can you also let me know what the release plan for the HTTP API functionality is? If it is being implemented currently, is there a tentative time by when you are looking into releasing it? Warm Regards, Sonali Amonkar (From James Taylor-2) Excerpts from Sonali Amonkar's message of Sun Jan 16 17:17:14 +0000 2011: > I agree what you mentioned on Tools.

Currently I don't think this is implemented, but the plan is that this would be done through the API. > At initial glance I was unable to figure out what the scripts are > for(am basically not familiar with Python).

Galaxy is primarily a web application, and the API provided is REST / HTTP based. The python scripts are command line wrappers for accessing this. If you want to use the API from a Java application, you would just access it directly through the web. We do not provide any special support for Java, but you are welcome to contribute and API wrapper.

Basically, any of the tools can be run from the command line.
