D!BS API

Web APIs return data that can be consumed on a broad range of clients, including browsers, mobile devices, and traditional desktop applications.A data returned by the WebAPI will be in either XML or JSON format.The format, or content type, is determined by means of content negotiation between the API and the requesting device via the Accept header,which is specific to the type of device sending the request.

There are six Web APIs available in DiBS. The table below briefly describes each WebAPI and outlines the structure of the returned data. The language of the returned data structure is shown in XML (attributes appearing in the root element are omitted for clarity). In the Web API and Description column, the data variables are in bold italics. In the Structure of Returned Data column, the data types are in bold italics.
