Question regarding webservices...
« on: 05. February 2014., 18:55:44 »
Well, I'm coding a program using python 2.7 (It's a problem restriction.. :c ) and I thought about making a package manager, like apt por Debian, to install add-ons to this program, so I thought about creating a Webservice for package distribution, but I haven't made any webservice so I have some questions:
  • Best practices when making a WebService?
  • Any security considerations I shoud take into account?

Basically, the service should manage a database of packages, give clients download URLs, give clients package versions and tell clients packages dependencies.
Also, I don't know if for the package downloads, would it best to use a FTP repo, or give direct HTTP downloads, or send bitstreams trough a socket connection... any thoughts?

Unfortunately, I can't help with this... but I think that this topic belongs to "System & Security Management"

I'll move it there... ;)

S. , I think you can help :p

If you were to setup a package repo (and maintain it), would you prefer it to be a simple FTP server or some application server running in the machines? :p
(Perhaps something written in PHP, or python+django, ASP...)

I love "the simple things", so FTP is my choice.  O0
