ZExplore Development Interface (ZEDI)
 ZEDI is a utility with graphical user interface bundled with NetApp Manageability
SDK (NMSDK).
 This utility enables you to test DATA ONTAP APIs and DataFabric Manager
server APIs. This utility allows you to generate raw XML request for any given
API. You can supply necessary arguments in the XML request before invoking
the API through HTTP or HTTPS and you can view the response in raw XML
format or tree format.
 For a given API, the utility can generate sample codes in Java, Perl, C, C#,
Python and Ruby to demonstrate how the said API can be invoked using
NMSDK Core APIs. You can choose to include comments (API documentation
descriptions) and/or optional parameters while generating the XML request and
sample codes.
 You can generate workflows by sequencing multiple APIs in logical order. It also
supports vFiler and Vserver tunneling, which enables a DATA ONTAP API to be
invoked directly on a vFiler or a Vserver respectively.
