Recently GeoServer has official released a RESTful configuration api. This api allows clients to configure the data served by a GeoServer instance. Details of the api can be found here.

This project involves building a client library for accessing this api. Such a library is beneficial because a) it abstracts all the details of the api preventing tight coupling and b) promotes use of the api in a variety of environments.

Students will be encouraged to implement the library in one of the following languages:

  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • Unix script
  • PHP
  • Java
  • C/C++

Other languages also welcome.

Potential additions

After writing a nicely abstracted library, one could go further and develop a gui tool to allow non-programmers to easily configure GeoServer.
