Introduce a couple of packages that make it easy to interface a Julia application with external systems.


JuliaWebAPI.jl makes exposing Julia methods over HTTP trivial. It can serve as a robust API platform when combined with an appropriate queuing and scaling mechanism.

ProtoBuf.jl is a Julia implementation for protocol buffers which makes it possible for Julia applications communicate with other applications in a distributed, heterogeneous environment. For example, the Elly.jl package uses ProtoBuf extensively to integrate with HDFS and Yarn. However the use cases are many more.
