JAZZ Java API? REST/WEB SERVICES? How does it work?

Hello techies,

I need to expose a Web Service that lets me create and manage work items in RTC, so that I can trigger those create / modify tasks from a Business Process (BPEL) by just invoking that service.
Could any of you point me to the best way of doing that, is there an API, Java maybe for that, or does the Jazz server come with REST services that can handle those kind of tasks? Could you also provide me with a link to some useful documentation or tutorials on the subject please?

Thanks,

Michael

There is currently no officially supported Restful HTTP API for work
items. This is planned for 2.0.

You can create work items using plain Java, however. Please see

https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ClientLibrarySetup
https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ProgrammaticWorkItemCreation

An example snippet:

IWorkItemWorkingCopyManager workingCopyManager=
workItemClient.getWorkItemWorkingCopyManager();
IWorkItemHandle handle= workingCopyManager.connectNew(fgDefectType,
null);
WorkItemWorkingCopy workingCopy=
workingCopyManager.getWorkingCopy(handle);

workingCopy.getWorkItem().setHTMLSummary(XMLString.createFromPlainText(getName()));
workingCopy.save(null);
