Moving From Live Search API 1.x to 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Based on the documentation looks like we need to get a new APP Id to access 2.0 API

    Will the 1.x API code continue to work with the 2.0 API?

    Are there any breaking changes when we use API 2.0 (from 1.x)

    Any other changes needed when moving from 1.x to 2.0?

  • We kept all the samples in the MSDN docs as "cut and paste ready" as we could. We don't have (yet) a comprehensive paper outlining the differences, but I think it is probably faster to just rewrite the request-building and response-handling code than to modify it.

  • The format of the request and the response changed when we moved to a strongly typed model.

    API 1.1 code needs some reworking to use API 2.x.

    The good news is that the model of API 2.s is not bound to change any time soon and that API 1.1 is still fully maintained. No new features are added, but it is not going away any time soon.

    The recommendation is to use API 2.0 for the new versions of your applications, just phasing out the usage of API 1.1

  • Thanks for the quick/helpful reply. Are there any code samples which illustrate the changes?
