Hi Randy,

A 404 likely means the endpoints config is wonky. Are you running latest
copy from git? The 500 indicates something goes wrong internally. Can you
tell what response you are getting exactly? In case of a 500, there should
be more details in the response body.

Kind regards,

Trying to come up to speed with the Alpha version of Corona. i.e. the REST
connection to MarkLogic.
*BTW this is what I really need so thanks to the developer group!*

I want to use it with a .NET app, i.e. send http queries, requests, etc and
use the MarkLogic results in the .NET app.
Firs,t this is my view of how Corona works which may not be correct:
    - Http app server receives the REST message based on documentation
rules i.e. server http address; service name; options etc... for the
particular service.
    - Uses the library of apps to query or do whatever to the MarkLogic db
it points to.
     - Packages the results and returns the results via Http to fulfill the

History of what I've done:
1. I've got Corona installed according to the instructions (I hope :-) ).
2. Ran the test/index.html test suite.
    - A lot of the tests run ok. Some do not. Not sure if this is because
it is Alpha code or my error.
3. Pointed the http app server to the top-songs database we used in class
as a test.
4. Note that the "setup" process added several Element Range Index to the
database, i.e. rangeEl, fromPersonal, rangeKey, both string and
decimal.*Is this normal?
5. Almost everything I've tried from the .NET app or just adding the http
call in a browser gives a 404 or 500 error.
    - For example:




Any ideas on where to look to get Corona to begin to talk back to me?
