Re: [MCN-L] Anybody using IMu for public API

2015-02-13 Thread David Newbury
At the Carnegie Museum of Art, we’ve been looking into bypassing IMu and 
building and using the XML export feature, and building our API off those 
exports.  We don’t have a pressing need for realtime data in our API, and it 
means that the developers working on the API (i.e., me!) don’t need to be as 
intimately involved in the intricacies of EMu—it’s just an XML parsing problem. 
 It also means that there are no security issues, as least as far as writing 
goes—the API doesn’t have any access to the real database, so it is impossible 
to get to non-exported data or overwrite and live data.




We’re not sure that’s the best technique—we go back and forth on using IMu or 
continuing down this path.  We’d also be interested in any feedback or insights 
people might have.

 Hi all
 We're (Te Papa) finally looking to use IMu a bit more from our EMu. We're 
 thinking about a public facing API and a few more specialist uses. Does 
 anyone have any experience they can share on successfully/unsuccessfully 
 using IMu for external feeds/API etc?

[MCN-L] Anybody using IMu for public API

Contact Axiell which now owns eMU as I believe they are working on
something.
