We have a centralized repository of cameras which can be accessed using the CameraDatabase API. We also have numerous image processing teams in CAM2 (continuous Analysis of Many Cameras). But we have a problem. A basic client is to be made which can interact with our server to automate the process of retrieving data from the database. If every team creates a new client it will lead to maintenance issues and the API development team will be under a restriction of not be able to change API in a swift manner (as all the users of the api will have to be notified of every change).

To Overcome this problem the Developers of the API have created this client which allows successful transactions with the API. This allows the API developers to be flexible and are held responsible for maintaining this client.
