    AS5000 API Basics

    Hi guys,

    First off, Im a newbie to all this API integration so apologies for any silly questions.

    So what type of API is the AS5000 running, is it REST?

    Basically I am on Windows and I need a program to send XML commands to our AS5000 and then see the response.  Whats the best tool to use for this as I have tried several without much luck.

    I found one tool and following the AS5000 API guide I sent this request:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <AMS>
    <Configuration>
         <Initialize/>
    </Configuration>
    </AMS>

    but the response always returns with an error 3, which apparantly means bad XML formatting. I cant see where the bad formatting is....here is the response:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <AMS>
    <Reply Status="ERROR" Msg="Error loadXML(API)" ErrNum="3"  />
    </AMS>

    Basically, I need some pointers with regards to what tools to use so that I can test the API properly. I am using  REST tool but im not sure it is a REST API.

    Essentially I am looking to develop an app that can remotely start and stop recording on one/all of the channels.

    Also, some example working commands would be greatly appreciated. 

    (Yes, I have the API Guide 2.5 PDF)

    Thanks a lot in advance.
