I have been using the OTA API for a considerable time now using Visual Studio in VB.NET Windows applications. Now I want to write a web portal which encapsulates various utilities for ALM via OTA API.

Seriously, I do not have an idea from where to start. These are precisely what I want:

1. Eliminate the need for Visual Studio License by developing web pages using WebMatrix (for ASP.NET applications) or Eclipse (For Java/J2EE Web applications)
2. Use OTA APi from these sites to connect to ALM.

Can anyone throw light on how I can go about? If possible, can anyone share with me some samples that might help?
