This is the NIWA report generation service
You are free to use the NIWA report generation service and servlet but we accept no responsibility of any kind.
This API supports a Representational State Transfer (REST) model for accessing a set of resources through a fixed set of operations. The following resources are accessible through the RESTful model:
There is also a WADL document describing the REST API.
This API is exposed through a set of WSI Basic Profile -compliant SOAP v1.1 endpoints. The API supports XML-binary Optimized Pacakging (XOP) and SOAP Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM) for transmission of binary data. The SOAP API is fully described by the following endpoints:
The SOAP API is also accessible by client-side libraries that can be downloaded from the download page .
All endpoints act on a common set of data. The data can be represented in different data formats (i.e. MIME types), depending on the endpoint that consumes and/or produces the data. The data can described by XML Schema , which definitively describes the XML representation of the data, but is also useful for describing the other formats of the data, such as JSON .
This document will describe the data using terms based on XML Schema . Data can be grouped by namespace, with a schema document describing the elements and types of the namespace. Generally speaking, types define the structure of the data and elements are instances of a type. For example, elements are usually produced by (or consumed by) a REST endpoint, and the structure of each element is described by its type .
