This page contains conceptual and procedural information about connecting your development environment to the ExactTarget web services API and accomplishing some basic tasks via the API.

Connecting Your Development Environment

Before you can interact with the ExactTarget web service API, you must first configure your development environment to connect with the API. Click the appropriate link below to access instructions on how to configure your specific development environment.

In the sample code examples you find in the web service API documentation, you will see references to etIntegrationFramework, partnerAPI, or other such entities. These represent the name of the proxy to the web service API. You will need to change those instances to the appropriate proxy name for your development environment in order to compile the code sample and use it in your development environment.
