Subject: Press coverage newsticker at heise.de

Dear members,

the german news ticker at Heise also picked up the OData v4 standardization. (I do not really care enough for media data, but know, that many colleagues in workplaces i worked, follow it.)

OData 4.0 adopted as an official OASIS standard

The Open Data Protocol ( OData ) is to create REST-based data services that can be with those published and edited via URI identifiable and described in a data model resource over HTTP messages possible.

The standardization body OASIS has released [version 4.0 of the Open Data Protocol](https://www.oasis-open.org/standards#odatav4.0) ( OData ) officially adopted . The project, initiated originally by Microsoft OData is developed as the standard for the OASIS ( Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) since 2012 and receives here the backing of many big software companies. In the [announcement about the new version](https://www.oasis-open.org/news/pr/oasis-approves-odata-4-0-standards-for-an-open-programmable-web) , which also corresponds to the first time a completed official OASIS standard that come as BlackBerry , CA , Citrix, IBM, SAP, Progress , Red Hat, SAP and SDL to speak.

This OData is described as ODBC ( Open Database Connectivity) for the Web. The protocol is based on the HTTP essay AtomPub and is of the REST architecture ( Representational State Transfer ) inspired . With OData can be alone with the URL to make complex database queries . Since it first does not matter on which systems and in what format this information, the protocol is also suitable for heterogeneous IT environments. By the time OData implementations and libraries are available , such as for Java , PHP, Node.js , .NET , SQL Server, MySQL , DB2, and Informix, iOS, Windows Phone and Android .

Simultaneously with the release of OData 4.0 also [OData JSON format 4.0](https://www.oasis-open.org/standards#odatajsonv4.0) has been finalized, which specifies the use of the protocol in combination with JSON (JavaScript Object Notation ) .

At first glance I thought, "hey, why do they drop Microsoft from the list?" But then I noticed it as mentioned prominently ("historically") and the rest seems to be the usual practice often found in writing, where a list of say 10 items, is reported as "for example" 9 items, which I consider a bad habit. ... but that's maybe only me.

OData 4.0 als offizieller OASIS-Standard verabschiedet

Das Open Data Protocol (OData) ermöglicht es, REST-basierte Datendienste zu erstellen, mit denen über URI identifizierbare und in einem Datenmodell beschriebene Ressourcen über HTTP-Nachrichten veröffentlicht und bearbeitet werden können.

Das Standardisierungsorgan OASIS hat die [Version 4.0 des Open-Data-Protokolls](https://www.oasis-open.org/standards#odatav4.0) (OData) offiziell verabschiedet. Das ursprünglich von Microsoft initiierte OData wird seit 2012 als Standard bei der OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) entwickelt und erhält hier Rückendeckung durch viele große Softwareunternehmen. In der [Ankündigung zur neuen Version](https://www.oasis-open.org/news/pr/oasis-approves-odata-4-0-standards-for-an-open-programmable-web), die zugleich erstmals einem fertigen offiziellen OASIS-Standard entspricht, kommen zum Beispiel BlackBerry, CA, Citrix, IBM, SAP, Progress, Red Hat, SAP und SDL zu Wort.

Darin wird OData als ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) für das Web beschrieben. Das Protokoll basiert auf dem HTTP-Aufsatz AtomPub und ist von der REST-Architektur (Representational State Transfer) inspiriert. Mit OData lassen sich allein über die URL komplexe Datenbankabfragen vornehmen. Da es zunächst keine Rolle spielt, auf welchen Systemen und in welchem Format diese Daten vorliegen, eignet sich das Protokoll auch für heterogene IT-Umgebungen. Mit der Zeit sind OData-Implementierungen und -Bibliotheken vorhanden, etwa für Java, PHP, Node.js, .NET, SQL Server, MySQL, DB2 und Informix, iOS, Windows Phone sowie Android.

Zugleich mit der Freigabe von OData 4.0 wurde auch [OData JSON Format 4.0](https://www.oasis-open.org/standards#odatajsonv4.0) finalisiert, das die Verwendung des Protokolls im Zusammenspiel mit JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) spezifiziert.

All the best,
