OData (Open Data Protocol) is an ISO/IEC approved, OASIS standard that defines a set of best practices for building and consuming RESTful APIs. OData offers full CRUD support with a standard convention for field selection, sorting, filtering, and other SQL functions via HTTP GET, POST, PUT, PATCH and DELETE requests. Popularly referred to as the “SQL for the Web”, OData provides simple data access from any platform or device without requiring any drivers or client libraries.
