As evidenced by some other posts on the subject I’ve made recently, I’ve been looking at the HttpApi/REST/ODATA stuff recently.
Whilst I’ve got the basic REST HttpApi stuff working for basic function calls, I’m unclear on what’s happening with regards to CRUD datatable access.
It seems that this is only supported via the REST HttpApi interface in .NET and that, in Delphi, we have to use ODATA instead. Unfortunately, from what I can see on here, ODATA v1 is next to useless as pretty much everything needs v4. A post from five years ago said this was planned for 9.1 but a later one said it was a low priority. I assume v4 still isn’t supported?
It looks like Delphi has been forgotten here. I’m being asked to provide a REST API to our software to allow not only discrete function calls but also CRUD access for data and it looks like I can’t. I could go the ODATA route but is there any point if it’s not going to be compatible with most other systems?
