RESTful web services in CollectionSpace

I have left the CollectionSpace project. However, I occasionally check out what my former colleagues there are up to. We had started work on an early draft for RESTful API documentation a few months ago. Subsequent versions are getting better, you could find it over at here. Because we had to support schema extensibility, you may find multi part payloads in examples cited. However, the draft does a nice job in describing the request and response payloads as well as error codes.

Thanks to Aron Roberts who has been diligently maintaining and updating it regularly and to Patrick Schmitz in shepherding the work. I hope it becomes a good reference for other projects using the RESTful web services.
