Enable the REST data service
The REST data service can represent WebSphere eXtreme Scale entity metadata to represent each entity as an EntitySet.
Start a sample eXtreme Scale data grid
In general , before starting the REST data service, start the eXtreme Scale data grid. The following steps will start a single eXtreme Scale catalog service process and two container server processes.
WebSphere eXtreme Scale can be installed using three different methods:
- Trial install
- Stand-alone deployment
- WAS integrated deployment
- Scalable data model in eXtreme Scale
The Microsoft Northwind sample uses the Order Detail table to establish a many-to-many association between Orders and Products.
- Retrive and updating data with REST
The OData protocol requires that all entities can be addressed by their canonical form. This means that each entity must include the key of the partitioned, root entity, the schema root.
- Start a stand-alone data grid for REST data services
Follow these steps to start the WebSphere eXtreme Scale REST service sample data grid for a stand-alone eXtreme Scale deployment.
- Start a data grid for REST data services in WAS
Follow these steps to start a stand-alone WebSphere eXtreme Scale REST service sample data grid for a WebSphere eXtreme Scale deployment that is integrated with WAS. Although WebSphere eXtreme Scale is integrated with WAS, these steps start a stand-alone WebSphere eXtreme Scale catalog service process and container.
