This page is a placeholder to document the media upload and access API that is being developed as a part of GSoC 2009.
|Update the service document to accept image types||In progress||The service document should indicate that it accepts images. When image data is posted to the collection, it should be accepted and a "success" response should be returned. (In the backend, it can simply perform a no-op at this time.)|
|Backend changes required to store images||Unstarted||There are some database and backend changes required to store the uploaded images and make them available for use.|
|Update the service document to return the complete list of images available (when requested)||Unstarted||The complete list of images stored in the gl_article_images table should be accessible via WS so that they can be edited or used in articles.|
|Allow editing of image metadata using the webservices API||Unstarted||Some information related to the image can be changed later and the webservices API should support this.|
|Support additional filters for retrieving list of images (optional)||Unstarted||The API might be able to support additional filters, such as getting only recent images, fetching thumbnails etc. These might be interesting features to look into.|
