Program guide > Access data with the REST data service



Request protocols for the REST data service

In general, the protocols for interacting with the REST service are the same as those described in the WCF Data Services AtomPub protocol. However, eXtreme Scale does provide additional details, from eXtreme Scale Entity Model perspective. Users are expected to be familiar with the WCF Data Services protocols before reading this section. Alternatively, users can read this section with the WCF Data Services protocol section.

Examples are provided to illustrate the request and response. These examples apply to both the eXtreme Scale REST data service and WCF Data Services. Because Web browsers can only retrieve data, the CUD (create, update and delete) operations must be performed by another client such as Javaâ„¢, JavaScriptâ„¢, RUBY or PHP.
