Using The Live Center Web Services

The Live Center plug-in provides two REST API web services:

  • An editorial web service with full read-write access to entries. This web service can be used to implement custom user interfaces that meet requirements not satisfied by the Live Center webapp, or for integrating Live Center with third-party systems. Access to this web service requires authentication as for the Content Engine web service.

  • A presentation web service with more limited access to entries. This web service is intended to fulfil the same purpose as the Java bean-based JSP presentation layer used by the Content Engine and most other Content Engine plug-ins, while allowing you to use whatever languages and UI technologies you choose to build your web pages. A similar presentation web service is planned for future versions of the Content Engine. The presentation web service is effectively a subset of the editorial web service. No authentication is required to access this web service.
