|+TestLink Java API|
|+Project homepage: http://testlinkjavaapi.sourceforge.net/|
|+TestLink Java API is a Java API that interfaces TestLink XML-RPC API. This API lets you call TestLink internal methods such as createTestProject, uploadAttachment, getTestProjectByName among others.|
|+Our aim with this project is always release one version of this API after a new version of TestLink has been released. So if, for instance, TestLink releases version 2.0, we will release testlink-java-api-2.0.|
|+One fact to keep in mind is that TestLink Java API can't assure you Backward Compabitility among its versions. It occurs because TestLink XML-RPC API is constantly changing. Even some methods are renamed. So trying to keep Backward Compatibility would be really cumbersome.|
|+Another important thing is that behind the scenes we are using xml-rpc to communicate with TestLink. However you won't see any xml or even a Map/HashMap when using TestLink Java API (ok, maybe in only one method :-).|
|+If you call the method getTestPlanPlatforms it will return an array of Platform (an object in TestLink Java API). This way you won't need handle Maps :-) And in case of any error, the message will come to you in a nice TestLinkAPIException. This is the basic concepts to get the gist of the TestLink Java API.|
