Powershell loading API

I just got access to the Zillow.com API. I want to use Powershell to call some of these Zillow API functions to get data. I have no idea how to load this API into a session so I can process info. Zillow provided me with some ID here is what they sent me

Your Zillow Web Services Identification (ZWSID) is: SO-MEidaa1lrcyknf_93aho

The ZWSID provided above is a sample. How do I connect to the API in powershell and list all methods available?

Hi,
from their API documentation
http://www.zillow.com/howto/api/APIOverview.htm
their API is nothing else than just calling the correct service URL providing the required url parameters, e.g. for a search:
http://www.zillow.com/webservice/GetSearchResults.htm?zws-id=<ZWSID>&address=2114+Bigelow+Ave&citystatezip=Seattle%2C+WA

Open in new window

As result you get a XML document.

Sorry but due to time constraints I cannot provide a full working sample, but it should be easy to adopt the following nice blog entry:
http://sharpcodenotes.blogspot.de/2013/03/how-to-make-http-request-with-powershell.html

You do not have to provide any additional header information (like the mentioned API key) as Zillow expects the key directly in the url.
