Reporting XML deprecated

Postby Josh Goodman » Fri Jan 21, 2011 10:45 am

This is a note to let you know that FlyBase will be deprecating our reporting XML format in favor of our Chado XML format.

Reporting XML was used early on for users of our acode format to help them migrate when we made the transition to our Chado database in late 2006. Keeping both formats around has become a burden to our development team and it is not widely used publicly so we will be phasing it out over the next year or more. Here is what this means to you:

  • Our public Reporting XML web service has been discontinued as of now
  • All new data classes that we release from now on will not have a reporting XML format
  • All existing reporting XML files will be supported for the next year but will be phased out after that
  • The existing reporting XML files will merely be maintained and not patched or enhanced

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
