- USS SDK: a java API to interface with the REST server from

A Getting Started guide can be found at:
There will also be a session on the USS at
EclipseCon in March, so we

For more information on USS, or to get started

hesitate to contact Christopher or I at webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx.
PS: The current version of the USS SDK is
located in the Ooomph
but in the near
future will be moved to its own project.
