What is the communication protocols between RTC Eclipse client and server?

What are the communication protocols used between the RTC Eclipse client and the server (RTC 403 )?

I believe it is the HTTP protocol in use. Apart, I also understand that the jauth protocol is used for authentication.

Will this be correct? Any additional inputs?

Thank you

The Eclipse client talks to the repo with a home-grown RPC mechanism based on the Eclipse Modelling Framework. Requests are sent across HTTP/HTTPS. 

Some JSON APIs are exposed for customer use. 

If you want to automate tasks or query the repo programmatically, I suggest looking at the SDK. It provides a Java API that abstracts away communications.

I think based on the reports from Jazzmon that the protocol for normal communications is HTTP REST.

Note that the protocol is HTTP.
"REST" is either an "architectural style" of using HTTP, or a meaningless marketing buzzword, depending on who is using it (:-).
