If you know SOAP, you just need to connect to any standard SOAP client at http://docs.otapi.net and use OTAPI methods.

If you are unfamiliar with SOAP, you can use simple HTTP GET/POST requests. For examples you may open any OTAPI method on the site, a form with fields for the parameters will appear. Use this form to see, what address and what parameters you should use to perform the http-request.
