#OData and OData JSON Format Approved Erratas published

OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of two Approved Erratas by the members of the OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC:

OData Version 4.0 Errata 03
OASIS Approved Errata
02 June 2016

and

OData JSON Format Version 4.0 Errata 03
OASIS Approved Errata
02 June 2016

What are the OData Erratas and why are they important?

The Open Data Protocol (OData) defines semantics for creating REST-based data services, allowing resources identified using URLs to be published and edited by Web clients using simple HTTP messages. The JSON Format extends the core specification by defining defining representations for OData requests and responses in JSON.

These Errata list minor clarifications and corrections to the OASIS Standards. Complete copies of each OASIS Standard incorporating the Approved Errata are included in these publications.

About the TC:

The OASIS OData TC works to simplify the querying and sharing of data across disparate applications and multiple stakeholders for re-use in the enterprise, Cloud, and mobile devices. A REST-based protocol, OData 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 provides a way to break down data silos and increase the shared value of data by creating an ecosystem in which data consumers can interoperate with data producers in a way that is far more powerful than currently possible, enabling more applications to make sense of a broader set of data. Every producer and consumer of data that participates in this ecosystem increases its overall value.

Members of the OData TC [1] approved this specification by Special Majority Vote. The specification had been released for public review as required by the TC Process [2]. The vote to approve as a Committee Specification passed [3], and the document is now available online in the OASIS Library as referenced above.

Our congratulations to the TC on achieving this milestone and our thanks to the reviewers who provided feedback on the specification drafts to help improve the quality of the work.
