Oracle REST Enables Oracle Database and Oracle NoSQL

Oracle REST Data Services version 3.0 is now generally available. Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) enables a consistent RESTful interface to Oracle Database's relational tables, JSON document store, and also enables access to Oracle NoSQL Database tables.

“Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) 3.0 dramatically reduces the complexity of building service based access to an Oracle Database,” said Michael J. Hichwa, Vice President of Oracle Database Tools.  “ORDS has been gaining momentum since first released in 2010, and release 3.0 is by far our most significant. Prior to release 3.0, ORDS required you use Oracle Application Express (APEX) to define your RESTful web services, now with ORDS 3.0 you can alternatively or additionally define RESTful web services from SQL Developer.  I urge everyone to see how elegant it is to define RESTful web services based on SQL that return JSON results.”
