UCSD REST XML vs JSON

Hello,

 

I noticed that some REST actions can be performed via JSON calls, and some via XML. The REST API Browser is a collection of XML calls, and I found that there is only a limited number of JSON methods comparing to XML. Since JSON is easier to call and parse using python, I was wondering if 1) there is any more advanced (hidden) doc for JSON calls, 2) there is a possibility to somehow translate XML to JSON calls, 3) there would be some consistency maintained in future releases of UCSD API (JSON=XML).

 

Cheers,

Krzysztof
