Request Types

All HTTP requests to this part of the server API are GET or POST requests. Every request must contain a mandatory parameter named type which specifies the expected return value. Currently available types are image, info, list, search and appinfo. The appinfo type is only meant for usage by NeptuneLabs Client applications like FSI Viewer.

The other types are discussed in detail in the following sections. Image, info and list requests are always directed at a certain renderer which defines the internal methods used to handle the request. Renderers are defined by XML files in a directory called renderers in the FSI Servers main config directory. More detailed information on renderers can be found in the FSI Server manual Renderers section.
