Relevance to BTS 2013 R2

Aug 25, 2015 at 4:48 PM
Just trying to understand how relevant this project is to BTS 2013 R2, since that version adds REST capabilities with the WCF WebHttp Adapter.

Are there things in this project that still add value to the 2013 R2 product, e.g. features that may be still lacking in the product?

The linked blog post on the project description dates back to 2012, but the current stable version of the projection is recent (may 2015), so I was looking for some more up-to-date information.

Possibly one thing that this REST kit does that the WCF-WebHttp adapter does not seem to cater for is handling exceptions. You can't seem to suppress it throwing a System.Net.WebException from the adapter and treat it as a business exception when doing a get and getting a 404 and handling it neatly in an Orchestration or messaging only solution.

The Setup project used in the project will need to be replaced with wix project as it is not compatible with Visual Studio 2013.
