Recommended Audiences: Solution Architects, Software Developers,
The Open Data Protocol (OData) is an open protocol for sharing data. It provides a
way to break down data silos and increase the shared value of data by creating an
ecosystem in which data consumers can interoperate with data producers in a way that
is far more powerful than currently possible, enabling more applications to make sense
of a broader set of data. Every producer and consumer of data that participates in
this ecosystem increases its overall value.
OData is consistent with the way the Web works – it makes a deep commitment to URIs
for resource identification and commits to an HTTP-based, uniform interface for interacting
with those resources (just like the Web). This commitment to core Web
principles allows OData to enable a new level of data integration and interoperability
across a broad range of clients, servers, services, and tools.
OData is released under the Open
Specification Promise to allow anyone to freely interoperate with OData implementations.
In this talk Chris will provide an in depth knowledge to this protocol, how to consume
a OData service and finally how to implement an OData service on Windows using the
WCF Data Services product.
