Overview:

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 Specification defines the core semantics and facilities of the protocol.

The OData Atom Format extends the core specification by defining representations for OData requests and responses using an Atom format.

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