Shopping API - Functional?

Hello. This is my first question here. The 'Make a call' API test tool at the following URL is not functioning: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/shopping/docs/Concepts/ShoppingAPIGuide.html Does this mean that the 'shopping' API is not working correctly? Many thanks in advance.

Parts of the Shopping API work and other parts are deprecated/dead. There are some old doc pages and tutorials on the eBay Dev site that aren't relevant anymore. It looks like the "Make a Call" tool you are referring to on that doc page uses the old deprecated FindPopularItems call. It's been failing recently, and a number of us have been [discussing it here][1]. [1]: https://forums.developer.ebay.com/questions/20000/findpopularitems-no-longer-working.html?sort=newest

Hi helios825. Many thanks for your input. I'm both happy and sad to find out, that the 'depreciation' of the 'FindPopularItems' API call, is the root of the problem that has caused my business to suffer these past weeks. I sincerely hope that the 'API team' can rectify this problem swiftly. Thanks again helios825!
