Subject: [EVOLUTION] BZ::Client, XMLRPC API vs REST API
Date: Tue, 9 May 2017 10:25:54 +0000
To: "bug-BZ-Client [...] rt.cpan.org" <bug-BZ-Client [...] rt.cpan.org>
From: Raphael Crochet <raphael.crochet [...] actia.fr>
XMLRPC API will be deprecated in the future of Bugzilla. I didn't find your roadmap, do you plan to support the REST API of Bugzilla ? It would be cool that BZ::Client could support either XMLRPC API or REST API. This would be a good thing for sustainability of code using BZ::Client.

Hi Raphael In the pod of BZ/Client.pm I have spoken about the future of this module: --------------- BUGZILLA VERSIONS ^ Please note that this BZ::Client module is aimed at the XMLRPC API available in Bugzilla 5.0 and earlier. For 5.1 and later, which have a totally different REST API, please see Net::Bugzilla. As such, I welcome all patches (via pull request) for functionality relating to 5.0 and earlier. I will only actively hunt down bugs relating to the 'maintained' Bugzilla server softwares. Please upgrade your server and duplicate the problem, or see the above commitment to accept patches to fix for older versions. --------------- The design of the BZ::Client I am not very happy with, for example this is very strange: my $client = BZ::Client->new( %etc ); my $bugs = BZ::Client::Bug->get( $client, $ids ); It really should be more like: my $client = BZ::Client->new( %etc ); my $bugs = $client->bug( $client, $ids ); So when I took maintainer role of BZ::Client, I spent lots of time expanding all the functionality to match the 4.4 XML RPC API (sorry, i missed the file upload). But the plan is to use the change to REST api to provide a more comfortable API for programmers.

Hi Dean, Thank you for your quick answer. I didn’t notice the ‘Bugzilla Versions’ advice. Unfortunately, I could not find the Net::Bugzilla module in CPAN. The only thing I saw is Net::Bugzilla::Kanbanize which seems not very alive since June 2014. I agree with you about API and about your plan. Have you a target date for the REST support?

I had a sponsor to bring BZ::Client up to 4.4 and am happy to maintain it (adding you patches for example) - but I don't have a sponsor for REST API yet. So, unfortunately I can't provide an estimate.
