The provided sample command-line driver can be used to experiment using REST from the command-line.
The command-line driver was written as proof of concept to demonstrate use of the REST API, and is not intended as a primary way of interacting with it.
Source code for the command-line driver is available as an IntelliJ/Maven project in a Bitbucket repository - https://bitbucket.org/deltaxml/docbook-compare-rest-java-cli/. Please customize as needed. This client uses XPath to process results.
