        A developer can use the features of the RMS API to build applications that consume or publish protected and licensed digital information of their own design. The majority of the RMS API is intended to be used by software developers who are proficient in C++. Knowledge of SOAP is required if the SOAP Web methods will be used. Complete documentation and code samples are installed with the RMS SDK. The most up to date RMS SDK documentation can be found in the MSDN library under Win32 and COM Development/Security/Rights Management/SDK Documentation/Rights Management Services SDK.
