Web Services : Learning POST by Example. Invoking Cognitive Service APIs by Microsoft.

i was recently working with some Computer Vision APIs from Microsofts Project Oxford. I was especially interested in the vision apis


As i write this post on Web Services POST .. pun unintended – the interesting thing I noticed working with this vision stuff is how simple they have made the whole process of invoking their web service via POST messages.


  1. Request URL
  2. Request Parameters
  3. Request Headers
  4. Request Body


  1. Response 200
  2. Response 400
  3. Response 415
  4. Response 500.

These folks have even provided code samples in several languages :

  1. Curl
  2. C#
  3. Java
  4. JavaScript
  5. ObjC
  6. PHP
  7. Python
  8. Ruby
