Suggestion: server application for testing API requests for multiple devices



  • re: Sony Audio Control API

    Hi. When programming for many devices, often an emulator is provided for developers to enable testing without needing to possess all the possible supported devices.

    Would Sony please consider perhaps making an application/script to run on a web server somewhere that would respond to API method requests as if it were a real device? Obviously it wouldn't need any functionality except storing settings and responding to JSON requests.

    Querying different port numbers could get a response from a different "device". That way we could test the API responses from many Sony devices, supporting the various versions of the API (e.g. STR-DN1080, STR-DN1070, STR-DN1060, etc, various soundbars, etc) without the financial outlay and setup logistics involved.

    Thanks in advance for your consideration.
