The harvest-client serializes (using json) a subset of journal-objects
metadata and then sends it to the harvest-server, which is basically a
web-service plus a MySQL back-end.
I need to update this documentation  (will do this tomorrow early), but
you can get an idea of what fields are used. If you need an example of the
serialized format for the client-server communication you can look at .
The bits that handle the serialization process can be found here , which
is meant to be read.
