[ Campaign Classic ] - Web Service call via REST

Avatar

Level 3

Hi AC Community 

 

I'd like to know why Adobe Campaign API does not support REST web service call and only SOAP as per documentation.

 

Searching for a solid reason to share to one of my customers 

 

Thank you

Hello @_Clodo_,

you can build REST over SOAP by createing JSSP page in "Dynamic JavaScript pages":

 

    <%@ page import="/nl/core/shared/nl.js"%>
    <%
    loadLibrary("xtk:common.js");
    loadLibrary("xtk:shared/json2.js");
    NL.require('/nl/core/shared/xtk.js')
    .require("/nl/core/api.js")
    .require('/nl/core/jsspcontext.js')

 NL.API.init(request, response, {
    jsonOutput: true
    }, function(jsspContext) {
            response.addHeader("Pragma", "no-cache")
            response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
            response.addHeader("Expires", new Date().toGMTString());
            
            //do something resty
            
    });
%>

Also take a look at other pages in there for inspiration and also take a look at the 'nl/core/api.js'

REST came out around 2000. Neolane (Adobe Campaign Classic) was founded/created in 2001. REST was simply not mature enough and SOAP was the work horse of the day. 

 

Adobe Campaign Standard has some REST options. 

Adobe Journey Optimizer is completely REST based.
