Tutorial: GeoServer Scripting with Python and RESTConfig
David Winslow, OpenGeo
GeoServer's RESTConfig service is commonly used to automatically publish geospatial data to GeoServer's OGC services. However, RESTConfig allows reading and writing nearly all aspects of a GeoServer configuration. Participants in this tutorial will learn about the GeoServer configuration system, basic REST requests, and the usage of gsconfig.py, a Python module which allows using the simple but powerful Python scripting language with RESTConfig to automate administrative tasks.
