Important: During Q1-Q3 of 2012 thanks to Hayden Young and other contributors from Wijiti Pty Ltd a great effort has been invested to continue the development of REST API for DSpace. They reworked the code base, refreshed the project to be compatible with newest DSpace 1.8.1 version, fixed the bugs and provided the integration of DSpace, REST API and Joomla CMS.
