Having XML payloads was never a universal part of OpenStack services. During the Icehouse release the TC declared that being an OpenStack service requires having a JSON REST API. Projects could do what they wanted beyond that. Lots of them deprecated and have been removing the XML cruft since then.
Tempest is a tool to test the OpenStack API. OpenStack hasn't had an XML API for a long time. Given that current branchless Tempest only supports as far back as Icehouse anyway, after these changes were made, I'd like to propose that all the XML code in Tempest should be removed. If a project wants to support something else beyond a JSON API that's on that project to test and document on their own. We've definitively blocked adding new XML tests in Tempest anyway, but getting rid of the XML debt in the project will simplify it quite a bit, make it easier for contributors to join in, and seems consistent with the direction of OpenStack as a whole. -Sean -- Sean Dague http://dague.net _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
