Programatically Accessing Information in the Ketura Database

Data in Ketura is available in a number of ways:

  • Most information tables have links to provide data in either CSV or XML format. It is quite straightforward to create a web client that logs in to Ketura and accesses this information. Araxis can provide a free additional user licence if you wish to have a separate user for such access.
  • The Web Service API (Application Programming Interface) included with Ketura also provides access to data programmatically. For details of the API, including examples of its use, see the Web Service API Reference.
  • Ketura database backups are simple .zip archives, with a single XML file for each database table. The format of these XML files is pretty much self-explanatory, when read in conjunction with the Database Structure article.
