Using the OData Interface (Deprecated)

About this chapter

This chapter describes the OData interface and explains how to prepare to use this interface and how to define the OData database profile.

PowerBuilder can use OData 2.0 or 3.0 data sources.

OData (the Open Data Protocol) is a Web protocol for querying and updating data that provides a way to unlock your data and free it from silos that exist in applications. OData is based on REST (Representational State Transfer). It uses the standard HTTP protocol to access data using GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE.

At runtime, users can retrieve and manipulate data.
