Hello, I am looking for a way to get a header section retrieved by posting a url.  How do I do this?  The url would be done by a REST API.  Does anybody know how the REST api works?  Thanks!

You can use jquery  http://api.jquery.com/jquery.getjson/ and below is sample to use a flicker api
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>jQuery.getJSON demo</title>
  <style>
  img {
    height: 100px;
    float: left;
  }
  </style>
  <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
 
<div id="images"></div>
 
<script>
(function() {
  var flickerAPI = "http://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?jsoncallback=?";
  $.getJSON( flickerAPI, {
    tags: "mount rainier",
    tagmode: "any",
    format: "json"
  })
    .done(function( data ) {
      $.each( data.items, function( i, item ) {
        $( "<img>" ).attr( "src", item.media.m ).appendTo( "#images" );
        if ( i === 3 ) {
          return false;
        }
      });
    });
})();
</script>
 
</body>
</html>

MS  has a video on consuming a WCF http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/gg617675

If you use jquery ajax https://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/ you can use the head method
$.ajax({
  type: "HEAD",
  url: "/Folder/URL/",
  data: { name: "John", location: "Boston" }
})
  .done(function( msg ) {
    alert( "Data Saved: " + msg );
  });

Here is what I am attempting to do:

I know how to work with web services to a degree like MVC, WCF, etc, but I am looking to work with a REST API from Oracle's Taleo.  So, here is the process that I am trying to do:

1. Use a POST url which contains a user id and password and be able to retrieve a response which contains a record called authToken.  So the response should be something like the following when running it through FireFox RESTClient:

"response" : {"authoToken: "webapi123456789101112131415"}, "status" :{"detail" :{}, "success":true}}

2. Attach the "webapixxx" string as a header authToken and send a GET with  URL to get records back.  Not sure exactly how this is done.  If you guys could guide me, I'd appreciate that.  Thanks!  And one more thing, can this be done with a console application?

In the console you can always run the code on the page and view the response back.  In chrome console, click on the Network tab, then find the page you are posting to.  Make your call and you will see the page added.  Now click on that and you can see the headers, preview and response on the right.  All the browser consoles will work about like that.
