Four #OData specifications approved as Committee Specifications

OASIS is pleased to announce that OData Version 4.01, OData Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) XML Representation Version 4.01, OData Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) JSON Representation Version 4.01, and OData JSON Format Version 4.01 from the OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC [1] have been approved as OASIS Committee Specifications.

The Open Data Protocol (OData) enables the creation of REST-based data services, which allow resources, identified using Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) and defined in an Entity Data Model (EDM), to be published and edited by Web clients using simple HTTP messages. The Committee Specifications announced today are:

- OData Version 4.01

This document defines the core semantics and
facilities of the protocol.

- OData Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) XML Representation Version 4.01

OData services are described by an Entity Model (EDM). The Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) defines specific representations of the entity data model exposed by an OData service using, XML, JSON, and other formats. This document specifically defines the XML representation of CSDL.

- OData Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) JSON Representation Version 4.01

This document specifically defines the JSON representation of CSDL.

- OData JSON Format Version 4.01

This document extends the core specification by defining representations for OData requests and responses using a JSON format.

These Committee Specifications are OASIS deliverables, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
