I've completed the primer for XINS and I think I'm a little confused. Hopefully someone can clear things up for me. This is what I'm thinking I could do with XINS:

  1. Get the web api for say ebay, google or any other site that offers api for their website.
  2. Through XINS, create functions for all of their methods (eg. ebay.getProductDescription())
  3. Basically creating an api on my end to talk to their api on their end.
So would it look something like this?

Request
servlet or jsp ----->XINS api -----> ebay's api

Response
ebay's api -----> XINS api ------> servlet or jsp

Ultimately what I want to do is have 4 or 5 webapi's from other sites that I mesh into one site. Is this the intent of XINS?

Thanks,
Eric
