Andrei Savu updated ZOOKEEPER-809:

    Attachment: ZOOKEEPER-809.patch

This patch contains:

* basic support for sessions ( create: POST 
/sessions/v1?op=create&expire=SECONDS, delete: DELETE /sessions/v1/<ID>, 
heartbeat: PUT /sessions/v1/<ID> )
* support for ephemeral nodes: create: POST 
* experimental (almost complete) python REST client
* demos: demo_master_election.py & demo_queue.py 
* updated specs

I'm not going to implement watches now because they are not useful if the 
client pulls the server for changes.  

Working on: 
* configuration, ACLs and basic authentication 
* packaging - I want to be able to run the REST gateway as a task managed by 
the Hue [1] supervisor. 

I would really like to get more feedback from you regarding this patch. Thanks.

> I would like to extend the existing REST Interface to also support:
> * configuration
> * ephemeral znodes
> * watches - PubSubHubbub 
> * ACLs 
> * basic authentication
> I want to do this because when building web applications that talks directly 
> to ZooKeeper a REST API it's a lot easier to use (there is no protocol 
> mismatch) than an API that uses persistent connections. I plan to use the 
> improved version to build a web-based administrative interface.
