This guide is designed for users of the XML Merge REST API. The XML Merge REST service allows you to invoke XML merge operations from a wide range of programming languages and systems.
The REST interface does not allow adding stylesheets to Extension Points. This means that the special processing of elements that are concerned with styling (formatting elements) provided in the XML Merge product is not available when using REST. In other words, it is not possible to handle formatting elements in a special way.
This API also allows merge types to be discovered and merges to be invoked - in either a synchronous or asynchronous fashion.
