Whats the problem with the REST Api's, I haven't tried it but thought it would just be a matter of dropping some TDataSources and so on?

The built-in REST library is verbose and tedious, and it doesn't do HTTP pipelining which means any non-trival API over HTTPS will be slow as a dodo (though maybe they fixed this recently, haven't checked latest version).

In addition, the built-in JSON stuff is also tedious to use, I found SecureBlackBox's variant with some class helper to provide basic XPath-like access to be quite a lot more ergonomic to use. But JSON still feels like an impedance mismatch.

Thanks for the info
