Invitation to comment on four #OData specification drafts - ends December 18th

We are 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] is now available for public review and comment. This release has been updated based on feedback from the previous public review. The comments received in that review and their resolution can be found the TC's comment resolution logs [2].

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 public review drafts released 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.

The documents and related files are available here:
