Quick background, re-building a "product importer" exe that was written for v7 using the old web API and ideally want to replicate all the old logic to work in the new v8 site using the RESTful ItemService API.
Part of the logic, involved "creating media items" , i.e. programatically downloading images from a source url and uploading them to the sitecore media library and saving the media items on an image field property on the product item page.
In the old API this was done using using the Create Media items logic ,see page 10 of the old web API documentation here https://sdn.sitecore.net/upload/sdn5/modules/sitecore%20item%20web%20api/sitecore_item_web_api_developer_guide_sc65-66-usletter.pdf
I cant find a way to do the equivalent in the new API, and if someone knows how or can suggest the best alternative to archive the same result, that would be greatly appreciated, please also add some sample code.
Thanks in advance
