-- Information about the Candidate OASIS Standard and the OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC --
Much of the data on the Web today lives in silos, needing different protocols, APIs, and formats to query and update the data. With the rapid growth of online information, open data protocols and services are in demand more than ever before.
OData is a REST-based Web protocol. It builds on HTTP, AtomPub, and JSON using URIs to address and access data feed resources. It enables information to be accessed from a variety of sources including (but not limited to) relational databases, file systems, content management systems, and traditional Web sites.
OData JSON Format Version 4.0 extends the core specification by defining representations for OData requests and responses using a JSON format.
Visit the OData TC  page and OData.org  for information, content, videos, and documentation and to learn more about OData and the ecosystem of open data producer and consumer services.
