TUCAA offers a mean to access its database by external programs, delivering raw, binary data instead of HTML pages. The API is implemented through the web services technology.
With the TUCAA's web service, software developers can interact with the ever-expanding acronyms database directly from their own computer programs. TUCAA uses the SOAP and WSDL standards so a developer can program in his or her favorite environment - such as Java, Perl, or Visual Studio .NET.
At this moment, only one function was developed: the exact search for an entry.
