    Calling REST API to upload large amount of binary data from ThingWorx

    I am new to ThingWorx API and have questions regarding data transfer using custom Java REST API.

     

    I have currently implemented single web service, but will be getting 100s of simultaneous calls.

    Is there some mechanism to queue the requests or simultaneously calling the web services because each request is going to take some time due to large amount of data being transmitted?

     

    As there would be a custom REST API, what would be the best/efficient approach to call API from thingworx for tramitting binary data?

    Do we have any API operation on BLOB data which can compress/GZip data to efficiently improve transfer speed; just to reduce the encoding time manually?

     

    One more point, Is it appropriate to call REST APIs from Java Extensions code?
