As APIs continue to explode, each organization exposes its own unique REST/SOAP/Bulk APIs for consuming their data. And some of them also come up with their own unique query language such as ROQL (Oracle Service Cloud), SOQL (Salesforce), etc. This makes it difficult for an enterprise and its development team to be able to learn and code against all these different APIs.

This is where OData is very useful. OData advocates a standard way of implementing REST APIs that allows for SQL-like querying capabilities using these RESTful APIs. OData is essentially SQL for the web built on top of standard protocols – HTTP, JSON & ATOM – while leveraging the REST architecture style.

In this workshop for the Progress hackathon challenge, you will be learning what OData is, how you use it and how you generate OData using Progress DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline for any data source for your hackathon project.
