for an upcoming project, I will need to write a middleware that inserts some data into MS Project - Projects. After investigating I found two ways of communication with the Sharepoint-Ecosystem that I'd consider using:
- .NET API (CSOM - Libraries)
- REST Webservice
Figuring out the REST Webservice, especially the authentication took some time but I am now able to not only GET data but also make POST requests that update project fields.
While exploring the REST-paths I found myself surprised that they are actually much more developed than the sparse / rather confusing documentation had me believe.
Question: Will the MS Sharepoint / MS Project REST API be further developed or at least supported by Microsoft? I'd really like to use REST but I am not 100% confident that using the API will be the more future-proof choice.
Edit: I am aware that REST is not MS technology. The emphasis of my question is on the "Is Microsoft planning to change it's APIs or maybe discontinue REST support in future Sharepoint versions"
Thank you in advanced!
