Publishing resources exposed by ADF Data Control in RESTful services using RestLet and JDeveloper 11g
The previous two articles on RESTful services using RestLet and developing in JDeveloper 11g – First Steps with RestLet 1.1RC2 in JDeveloper 11g – restful services 101 and Extending the RestLet application with support for POST/PUT to create and update Resources – used a static data set as source for the Resources. For real world services that will not be your typical scenario. Usually a business service hiding a persistence layer sitting on top of a database or wrapping a web service (RESTful or otherwise) is the more logical publisher of resources.
In this article, we will see how we can leverage ADF Model – Data Control & Data Bindings – to hook up such a business service.
