Atom Publishing Protocol Plugin

The Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) is an application-level protocol for publishing and editing Web resources. The protocol is based on HTTP transfer of Atom-formatted representations. The Atom format is documented in the Atom Syndication Format RFC4287.

Protocol Model

The Atom Publishing Protocol uses HTTP methods to author Member
Resources as follows:

  • GET is used to retrieve a representation of a known resource. ( currently the plugin supports pages and news )
  • POST is used to create a new, dynamically-named, resource. When
    the client submits non-Atom-Entry representations to a Collection
    for creation, two resources are always created - a Media Entry for
    the requested resource, and a Media Link Entry for metadata (in
    Atom Entry format) about the resource.
  • PUT is used to update a known resource.
  • DELETE is used to remove a known resource.

This plugin makes confluence content available via the atom publishing protocol - http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/atompub-charter.html
APP is emerging as the leading content publishing api and there are a host of clients on the way.
