  1. make the leading / optional - its really quite naf that ./rest SomePlugin/func does not work
  2. make ./rest with no params list all the registered resthandlers - on cmdline as a simple txt list, and in a content-type html, something browser appropriate..
  3. make ./rest SomePlugin list all the registered handlers for that plugin.

and then consider adding docco to the register method....

Good idea.

See http://cmis.alfresco.com/service/index (user: admin, password: admin). Note that the docu of these webservices are available under a different url than the actual services. Like cmis is at http://cmis.alfresco.com/service/cmis ... which returns the repository description in atom format whereas service/index is a more human readable docu in html.

(btw. nice rest client plugin for firefox at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restclient/ )

I think Sven is coming from the CLI POV (ending the need for a tools/ directory? smile

An WSDL for Foswiki's various 'rest' handlers, automatically maintained - now that would rock smile

... if only perl had proper wsdl support.
