Excellent :)

Know that it is still in prototype/alpha stage and there's quite
limited documentation about it... but by reading the code in
you could hopefully get some hints about its functionality.

>> Great to hear!

>> 2) Checkout the REST component from subversion:
>>       svn co https://svn.neo4j.org/laboratory/components/rest neo4j-rest
>> 3) Start a neo4j graph database instance with the REST API on top of
>> it with the "start" script in the neo4j-rest/ folder (make sure that
>> you're using Java 6 or later for the REST component):
>>       cd neo4j-rest/
>>       ./start   (or on Windows: start.bat)

>>      Press ENTER key to kill the server
