#OData JSON Format Version 4.0 OASIS Standard published

We are pleased to announce the publication of our latest OASIS Standard:

OData JSON Format Version 4.0
OASIS Standard
24 February 2014


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.

It was approved as an OASIS Standard by the membership of the organization on 24 February 2014 in https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ballot.php?id=2569.
